MaxMara Art Prize Winner

I mentioned this women only art prize had been short-listed last October. The winner was announced today…

It went to Yorkshire-based film-maker Margaret Salmon, 30, who will use the award to shoot a new work about motherhood.
The prize, inaugurated last June in collaboration with London’s Whitechapel gallery, is for emerging female artists based in the UK. It has ambitions to become the art world’s equivalent of the women-only Orange Prize for Fiction, nurturing new talent and boosting the profile of female artists.
