Lyon wins Crown Fine Art photography prize

November 24, 2014

To support and motivate talented artists across the UK, Crown Fine Art recently sponsored an award for photography at the eighteenth National Open Art (NOA) Competition.NOA

Organized by the Chichester Art Trust, NOA provides UK artists with the opportunity to exhibit, sell and promote their own work.

This year, over £60, 000 (approximately US$ 94, 000) was awarded to artists at a private awards ceremony. The winners were selected by a judging panel made up of Norman Ackroyd RA, Vanessa Branson, Caroline Irby and Chris Orr RA.

The Crown Fine Art Award for Photography, of £3,000 (approximately US$ 4,700), was presented to Marcus Lyon for his piece entitled EXODUS VII – Tin Shack City, Cape Flats, South Africa (2011). The piece was taken from the EXODUS series which explores the most significant migrations of the 21st-century.

We were extremely proud to support a competition that shares our passion for art.

The shortlisted works, including Tin Shack City, were exhibited at Somerset House, Embankment Gallery. The winning works are currently being transferred to Chichester for NOA’s next exhibition at Pallant House Gallery.

After Pallant House Gallery, the exhibition will tour Chichester, London and other venues across the UK.
