The Norfolk Contemporary Arts Society, founded in 1956, is a charitable organisation for contemporary arts in Norfolk. Each year they work with Norwich University of the Arts to award a BA (Hons) Fine Art graduate a £500 prize, selected from the Graduate Showcase.

Vice-Chancellor of Norwich University of the Arts (NUA), Professor John Last, said: “The Norfolk Contemporary Arts Society’s support for NUA, our students and graduates — and the support it represents from established local artists — is all the more valuable this year where connection and a sense of creative community feels more important than ever.

“I know our fine art graduates really appreciate the endorsement of their creative output as they embark on their careers.”
