The Aon Community Art Awards Programme

 

The programme provides workshops and mentoring for the artist for a period of one year, while their art is exhibited in Aon's client suite, for clients, colleagues and around 400 visitors a day to see. At the end of the 12-month period, the artwork is sold via an online and live auction, with all proceeds going back to the artist.

In addition, all selected artists receive a cash amount for agreeing to loan their art to Aon for the programme, and two cash prizes are awarded: a £5,000 prize to the artist selected by an external panel of judges as the most promising, and a £2,000 prize for Aon employees' favourite piece of work.
