The organizers of the Prudential Eye Awards have announced the shortlist of 18 artists for the 2015 edition with the winners to be on January 20 in Singapore. The prizes recognise the best emerging Asian contemporary artists as well as the leading exhibitions, galleries, institutions and art critics working to promote Asian contemporary art.

The second edition of the Prudential Eye Awards features 13 prizes, with six categories of Best Emerging Artist using mediums such as digital/video, drawing, installation, painting, photography and sculpture. Each category winner will be awarded $20,000 and out of these six artists, one overall winner will be chosen as ‘Best Emerging Artist,’ winning a further $30,000 and the opportunity to hold a solo exhibition at the renowned Saatchi Gallery in London.
