The Best of Manchester

Five pairs of tickets to the Best of Manchester awards

Published on June 4th 2008.

The Best of Manchester

Win tickets to the Best of Manchester awards and the launch party - the evening includes live entertainment from high profile bands and a chance to sample the Manchester cocktail. Winners will get a first look at the Best of Manchester exhibition before everyone else and attend the award ceremony, presented by Peter Saville.

The Best of Manchester exhibition spotlights the work of Manchester’s creative professionals. There is no age limit, no hype and no rules: just the best creative thinking by the best creative professionals working in Manchester right now.

Anyone working within art, music and fashion - and who lives or works in Manchester - can enter their work. Winners will have their work judged by industry leaders and also get long-term professional development, a one-off cash prize and their own exhibition at Urbis.

Last year’s inaugural Best of Manchester celebrated the kind of cutting-edge creativity for which Manchester has long been renowned, from a musical based on the life of abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock to Art Deco-inspired commercial design.

The three categories – art, music and fashion – are deliberately broad, designed to encourage entries that blur boundaries, mix disciplines and are genuinely innovative.

The exhibition of shortlisted entrants’ work opens on 8 August (until 28 September), with the winners announced by Peter Saville at an awards ceremony on 7 August – to enter click here.

This competition has now closed. Congratulations to our winners Barry Miller, Paula Cunliffe, Helen Burden, Anton Ebanks and Libby Jordan, have a great time.
