The Art Fund Prize 2012, which celebrates the 10th anniversary of the award, has opened for entries.

The annual prize of £100,000 is awarded to the museum or gallery which undertook the best project in the previous year, as chosen by a panel of judges.

In 2011 the prize was won by the British Museum for its landmark project The History of the World. Other past winners have included Ulster Museum and Pallant House Gallery.

The Clore Award for Museum Learning, now in its second year, has also opened for entries. The Award celebrates quality museum and gallery learning with children and young people – in 2011, the award was won by both the South London Gallery and a consortium of the Pitt Rivers Museum and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

Entry to each of the prizes is open to all museums and galleries in the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. The closing date for submissions is Thursday 1 December 2012.
