About the event

THE CONCEPT We respect the creative principle of reduction (the competitive peer-review jury process) as it is employed to achieve an essential conclusive statement for each exhibit we produce. This is what has led to the high caliber of each Manifest exhibition, and to the gallery's strong reputation.

With this principle of reduction in mind, we have been inspired by the intensity of jury after jury to narrow down a collection of entries to a suitable exhibit. Therefore for the Manifest Prize we set out to push the process to the ultimate limit—from among many to select ONE work to be exhibited in one of our five galleries* for the period of four weeks. This work will be the recipient of the MANIFEST PRIZE 2023, a cash award of $5,000 to the artist of a single work selected by our rigorous multi-member jury process, and presented in a gallery all to itself as the highlight of the competitive process, an honor to the artist, and a poignant statement for gallery visitors.  * Final space assignment will be determined by Manifest once finalist is selected.

The Manifest Prize was launched in 2010 as an annual offering. The cash award for this competition is now $5000 and a four-week solo exhibit of the single winning work displayed along with juror and artist statements. Four finalist works will be included in the season-documenting publication, the Manifest Exhibition Annual. (NOTE: the Manifest Prize is a separate award from the Grand Jury Award.)

Eligibility: THE MANIFEST PRIZE is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works of visual art, design, or high craftsmanship of any kind and be available and capable of being exhibited in one of Manifest's five galleries. Floor plans are available upon request. Works submitted for this award must have been completed within the past five years (since 2018).

IMPORTANT! Works submitted MUST be available for the exhibition period of early December through mid-January in order to be eligible for the prize. Works need not be for sale. Submission constitutes a formal agreement to provide the work for exhibit should it be selected. Manifest will abide by all tax requirements in disbursing prize money.
