The winner of this year's FUAM Graduate Art Prize will be announced at this live online event.

Now in its ninth year, the prize and exhibition, supported by the Friends of University Art & Music (FUAM), rewards the artistic excellence of students completing BA studies in Art and Design and Fine Art at the University of Leeds in 2021.

The judges have made their decision: the official announcement of the FUAM Graduate Art Prize 2021 winner will be made at this online evening event hosted by The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery.

The judging panel comprises Masud Khokhar (University Librarian and Keeper of the Brotherton Collection), Holly Grange (Exhibitions Curator, Leeds Art Gallery) and Professor Ann Sumner (freelance art historian).

The winning artist will be on hand to offer a short artist talk, with time for questions.
