We plan to announce the shortlist in summer 2016.
Our jury of respected international curators will now whittle down over a thousand entries to select the final shortlist of exhibiting artists. The exhibition opens on 27 October 2016, at which time the winner of the MAC International Ulster Bank Prize will be announced.
The MAC International Ulster Bank Prize 2016 of £20,000, will be awarded to one artist deemed to have made an outstanding contribution to the exhibition. It is the largest art prize in Ireland and one of the largest in Europe. The resulting exhibition will present the very best of contemporary visual art practice across all disciplines.
