Thames & Hudson: Student Writing Competition

Do you identify as part of a minority group within the arts?

Inspired by the 50th anniversary of Linda Nochlin’s groundbreaking essay Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?, which challenged biases and was a catalyst for feminist readings of art history, publisher Thames & Hudson are inviting all students who identify as part of any minority group within the arts to submit 500 words on what it means to be a minority artist or creative in 2021.

In the spirit of Nochlin’s essay, they are looking for “original, thoughtful pieces that offer authentic detail and insight”. Most importantly, they want your story. “Be as creative as you like!”

If you win, Thames & Hudson will publish your submission on their website, you’ll receive a copy of Linda Nochlin’s book, and a £250 prize from Art Fund.

This competition is a Thames & Hudson collaboration with Student Art Pass, terms and conditions apply.
