With over 1,600 applications received in 2015, submissions for Bloomberg New   Contemporaries 2016 are being accepted from 7 December 2015 –   17 January 2016, 6pm, UK time. Applications are welcome from final   year undergraduates and current postgraduates studying Fine Art at UK art   colleges, as well as those who graduated in 2015. To apply, we ask for a   portfolio of up to 6 works to be submitted online.

Following two rigorous   selection rounds, participants will be announced in April 2016 with the   resulting national touring exhibition offering a compelling picture of   contemporary practice. New Contemporaries continues to be the leading   and longest-running open submission, touring exhibition which showcases some   of the most dynamic and engaging work emerging from UK art schools. Since   1949 we have provided a professional platform, beyond the context of art   school, for new artists’ work to become visible, be supported and discussed,   often for the first time.

New Contemporaries   alumni include David Hockney, Patrick Caulfield, Anish Kapoor, Antony   Gormley, Mark Wallinger, Gillian Wearing, Peter Doig and Tacita Dean.
