Back in April I wrote on this blog about how to enter the Jerwood Drawing Prize - Making a Mark: The Jerwood Drawing Prize - how to enter
Some of you may have not entered for a variety of reasons. Some of those reasons will relate to your thoughts about whether or not their work 'fits' with this Prize. Now the shortlist has been announced you can take a look at the websites of the shortlisted artists - see below.
The list comes from the Jerwood Drawing Prize site and all the links to websites are down to me. If any artist would like their link changed to a more appropriate site please contact me.
(Note: See also The Websites of Contemporary Painters in the UK) I arrived at a new standard for searching for an artist's website while completing this list - the basic standard is you've got 15 seconds and the first two pages of Google to show me your work (outside a group exhibition). I think that might be a bit more than most people would allow.)

Just under 3000 entries were submitted this year for consideration by the distinguished panel of selectors comprising of:
