UK Graduate Nominated For Photography Award - A UK Graduate has been nominated for the Rudin Prize.
Bjorn Veno, who graduated from BA (Hons) Photography at UCA Rochester in 2006, is shortlisted for the inaugural Rudin Prize for emerging artists.
Five finalists are showing their work at the Norton Museum of Art in Florida from now until 9 December, when the winner will be announced.
Bjorn Veno said: “It is a great honour to be nominated for this award. At first, I could not believe it but when the curator Tim Wride came over from Florida to talk about what work should go into the show, it all became real. I strongly believe in the work that I'm making and that it has something important to say, so to be recognised in this way is a very good support to keep at it.”
The Rudin Prize, named after the late New York City developer Lewis Rudin, is a biennial award which asks five distinguished international artists to nomainate an up-and-coming artist with the winner receiving $20,000.
The winner of the Rudin Prize will be announced in December. To see more of Bjorn's work, visit his website.
