The shortlist includes established artists as well as relative newcomers and students fresh from art college. The selected works will be exhibited at JVA at Jerwood Space, London from 12 September – 28 October 2012, and then tour to venues across the UK including the new Jerwood Gallery, Hastings and mac, Birmingham.

John Moores Painting Prize 2012
First held in 1957, the John Moores Painting Prize is the UK’s best-known painting competition and is named after Sir John Moores (1896 – 1993), the founder of the prize. The competition culminates in an exhibition held at the Walker Art Gallery every two years, which forms a key strand of the Liverpool Biennial.
The John Moores exhibition is held in partnership with the John Moores Liverpool Exhibition Trust, and although the appearance of each exhibition changes, the principles remain constant: to support artists and to bring to Liverpool the best contemporary painting from across the UK.
The following works will be displayed in the John Moores 2012 exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery, opening on 15 September 2012.
