The John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize is an open submission competition available to all UK-based artists working with paint. Fifty years on from the first exhibition, the 25th is taking place during 2008, when Liverpool is the European Capital of Culture. The show promises to be more of a revelation than ever with conceptual artists Jake and Dinos Chapman taking part as jurors. The Chapman brothers, who work almost exclusively together, came to prominence during the 1990s as part of the generation of so-called YBAs or Young British Artists. Other judges for the competition are art critic Sacha Craddock and artists Paul Morrison and Graham Crowley, both former John Moores prize-winners.
