The Exchange


Celebrating the tenth anniversary of our popular Cornwall-wide art prize for young people between the age of 11 and 19, the theme of 2020’s Young People’s Art Prize focussed on the art of protest.

There are three age categories with prizes, and The Visitors’ Vote prize awarded to the artist whose work received most votes by the public. As the gallery was closed we added all the shortlisted works (more than 100!) to Facebook, to enable people to vote for their favourite work.

There were so many strong entries, we had to have some Highly Commended as well.
