AmaWaterways has joined forces with the British Art Prize to host one of the country’s top artists on a Seine river cruise in the north of France, worth more than £5,000.

Entrants have the opportunity to gain an unprecedented amount of national exposure, including the chance to showcase their artworks to nearly a million art lovers and collectors, and access a prize fund worth more than £10,000 in total.

AmaWaterways’ Seine river cruises visit Monet’s Garden at Giverny, along with a tour of medieval architecture Rouen, tours of Le Havre and Honfleur, and scenic cruising along the well-known waterway.

All shortlisted artworks will be exhibited at a major London art gallery in November, and their creators invited with a guest to an evening reception alongside artists, collectors and other VIP guests.

The overall winner of the British Art Prize, supported by edding, will receive £3,000 in cash, a seven-night luxury river cruise for two along the Seine with AmaWaterways – worth more than £5,000 – along with a £250 gift voucher from Rosemary & Co and a six-page feature in Artists & Illustrators.
