The Turner Prize is one of the best-known art prizes in the world (not always for the right reasons!), and is awarded to any artist under fifty who was either born in Britain, or anyone who has put on an outstanding exhibition during the last twelve months.

Tate Britain will be showcasing the work of each of the shortlisted artists, before announcing the winner in a big award ceremony in December.

This year's jury is made up of the art critic Oliver Basciano; director of the Kunsthalle Basel, Elena Filipovic; Head of Sculpture Studies at the Henry Moore Institute, Lisa LeFeuvre; and the novelist Tom McCarthy.
