The coun­try’s big­gest art prize has been awarded to an as­ton­ish­ingly wide range of in­sti­tu­tions in the past – from the Big Pit Na­tional Coal Mu­seum in Tor­faen to the mu­seum ship SS

Great bri­tain in Bris­tol. Last year’s win­ner was the Vic­to­ria & Al­bert Mu­seum in Lon­don, so it’s only ap­pro­pri­ate that its di­rec­tor Tris­tram Hunt takes us on a na­tional tour of this year’s hope­fuls, be­fore re­veal­ing the lucky win­ner. The con­tenders are: Birm­ing­ham’s Lap­worth Mu­seum of Ge­ol­ogy, The Na­tional Her­itage Cen­tre for Horse Rac­ing and Sport­ing Art in New­mar­ket, The Hep­worth in Wake­field and Sir John Soane’s Mu­seum and the newly ex­panded Tate Mod­ern, both in Lon­don.
