“So that Modern Painters readers may place their bets, here is a preview of the contenders, whose works will be on show at the Tate Gallery in London from 2 October to 10 January 1999. The £20,000 winner will be announced on 1 December. We invite readers to make their own selection and we’ll let you know who the ‘Modern Painters winner’ would have been from this poll. Artist’s name on a postcard, please, to the address at the front of the magazine. If you accompany your choice with a letter explaining your preference, or other comments  on the Turner Prize, we are offering a bottle of champagne (sorry, not twenty grand) for the best letter, which will be published in our next issue.”

There then followed brief, but succinct illustrated introductions to the work of the four artists shortlised for the Turner Prize in 1998. The piece appeared in Modern Painters, Autumn 1998, page 40. The artists in question were Tacita Dean, Cathy de Monchaux, Chis Ofili and Sam Taylor-Wood. The following article in the magazine was a piece on Ofili by Martin Maloney.
