The Moth Art Prize

The Moth Art Prize is awarded annually by The Moth magazine to a body of figurative or representational artwork. It is open to anyone (over 16) from anywhere in the world. The Prize consists of €1,000 plus a two-week stay at The Moth Retreat in rural Ireland.

The prize is judged by the publishers of The Moth, Rebecca O’Connor and Will Govan, alongside their colleague Helen Sharp. They are looking for two-dimensional portraiture, figurative or other representational work of any size – work that ‘takes courage’ and is in tune with the aesthetic of The Moth, contemporary but timeless. 


To enter, please submit a portfolio of images of 5–10 2D artworks – to include figurative or representational paintings, drawings (including mixed media) and original prints – to mothartprize@themothmagazine.com.

The following details should be included: your name, telephone number, number of images included and method of payment. 

You can also submit your entry (along with an 
entry form) by post to: The Moth, Ardan Grange, Milltown, Belturbet, Co. Cavan, Ireland 

Images cannot be returned. Please read the rules before you submit your work. 

Entry fee is €20 per portfolio.

The Prize will be judged anonymously by the publishers of The Moth.

Closing date 31 August 2020
