The Columbia Threadneedle Prize is supported by leading global asset manager Columbia Threadneedle Investments. 

The Columbia Threadneedle Prize was established in 2008 as a partnership between Columbia Threadneedle Investments and Mall Galleries.  It has grown to become the UK’s leading competition for figurative and representational painting and sculpture.

This is part of Columbia Threadneedle’s community partnership programme which is delivered through long term strategic partnerships with sporting and cultural organisations.

Columbia Threadneedle believes that a vibrant arts sector brings a wide range of social, cultural and economic benefits. For more than 10 years, Columbia Threadneedle has been a major supporter of the arts in the UK through partnerships that span visual arts, art as therapy and art-based education programmes for diverse groups and communities from London and around the UK.
