At the National Galleries of Scotland we recognise that we have a responsibility to do all we can to address the climate emergency. For many people, the association of this competition with BP is seen as being at odds with that aim. Therefore, after due consideration, the Trustees of the National Galleries of Scotland have decided that this will be the last time that the galleries will host this exhibition in its present form.
We respect the National Galleries of Scotland’s decision and we are grateful for all the support they’ve given to the award over the years. [. . .] We are currently considering options for our annual competitions when the building in London temporarily closes from 29 June 2020 to spring 2023.
