Judges have sifted through over a thousand entries to choose 72 contenders for the Lynn Painter-Stainers prize.

The prize aims to promote figurative painting in an age where the Turner Prize has become dominated by video artists.

The five judges are British artist Ken Howard, The Spectator art critic Andrew Lambirth, former Lynn Painter-Staines winner Antony Williams, Tate Britain fellow Andrew Wilton and British artist Nina Murdoch.

The winner will win £15,000 and the four runners up will each receive £1,500.

Members of the public can view the paintings for free at the Mall Galleries, London from 19 February- 2 March.
