The Cooper Prize, formerly known as South Yorkshire Open Art Competition, is open to artists who are born, live or work in South Yorkshire and aims to reward and celebrate excellence and originality in mixed media. 

Artists were invited to submit up to 3 pieces of artwork, whether it be abstract, figurative, contemporary or traditional where the very best have now been selected to form part of an exhibition at Cooper Gallery, Barnsley. 

See all the artwork and hear from some of the artist in our online exhibition
