The Rollins Museum of Art and the UCF Art Gallery invite submissions for Pathways 2024: The Carlos Malamud Prize. Pathways is a biennial, juried art competition and exhibition for emerging professional artists living in Florida. This edition will consist of a juried selection process resulting in a Summer 2024 group exhibition for the competition’s finalists. All exhibited artists will receive support and networking through a series of events and direct engagement with curators, museum and gallery professionals, faculty, and community to expand their connections in the art community. Participating artists will arrive at Pathways: The Carlos Malamud Prize from a variety of places within the state of Florida, with diverse professional experience, and have dynamic creative research and practice.

Deadline: Eligible artists are invited to apply for Pathways: The Carlos Malamud Prize 2024 through Submittable by October 29, 2023. Submit Artwork Here.

The Pathways 2024: The Carlos Malamud Prize winner will:

Be awarded a $10,000 cash prize.

Receive a solo exhibition at the UCF Art Gallery in Fall 2025.

Receive a consulting session with a financial advisor to discuss the financial aspects of a sustainable art practice.

Commit to being a juror for the following edition of the exhibition and a mentor for the next cohort of exhibiting artists.


This sustained engagement overtime makes Pathways: The Carlos Malamud Prize unique and transformative among other art competitions.



The exhibition and competition is open to all emerging artists (age 18 or older) who are residents of Florida and NOT currently enrolled as an undergraduate student. We are defining an emerging artist as one who has never had a solo exhibition in a gallery, arts center, or museum (solo BFA or MFA exhibitions at a college or university are acceptable). All work must be original, completed within the last two years, and not previously exhibited at any of the participating venues.
