  Turner Prize Shortlist
Turner Prize FinalistFour artists have been shortlisted for the Turner Prize at the Tate in Britain. The prize that has made itself famous or infamous for shock and controversy has thrown in another surprise : Traditional still life oil painting! It's quite a turn-around for the Turner to be choosing such an artist to be shortlisted for the 25 thousand pound prize.
Contemporary artists like Damien Hirst with his dead shark has been a previous winner, while Tracey Emin with her unmade bed installation has been shortlisted to win the Turner Prize.
Turner Prize Finalists for 2005 include Darren Almond (using mediums such as film, photography and sculpture), Jim Lambie (creating installation with found objects, glitter and colored tape), Simon Starling (transforms existing objects), and most shocking of all Gillian Carnegie (working with oil paints and traditional genres such as still life, landscapes and nudes).
Total prize money for Tuner Prize in 2005 is £40,000, with the winner receiving £25,000 and the three other finalists each receiving £5,000.

When did Tracy Emin win the Turner Prize?
 
My mistake. I have now changed it.
Tracey Emin has not won the Turner Prize, but was shortlisted in 1999.

Steve McQueen was the winner in 99 with "Deadpan"
The shortlisted artists for that year were..

Jane and Louise Wilson
Steven Pippin
Tracey Emin,
