The ARTiculation Prize is a public speaking competition encouraging Year 12 students to write and present about their favourite works of art.  Students are invited to deliver a 10-minute presentation to an audience about a work of art, artefact or architecture of their choice.

Dr Harrison-Moore will adjudicate at the regional heat taking place at the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery on Wednesday 12 February.

The ARTiculation Prize in Yorkshire is a collaboration between the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery, Leeds Art Gallery, and the University's School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, in partnership with the Roche Court Educational Trust.  It offers a unique opportunity for students to explore galleries and to take part in 'Ways of Seeing' and 'The Language of Sculpture' workshops.

Winners of the regional heats will go forward to a final at Clare College, Cambridge, on Saturday 1 March.

Regional heats and the final of the competition are being filmed this year for BBC2's The Culture Show.

For more information about the competition, see the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery website.
