Paul Hobson, Director of Contemporary Art Society, said: "Our award of £60,000 aims to encourage leading contemporary artists and museums to work together.
"We are excited by such a strong selection of museums proposing internationally acclaimed artists."
The Contemporary Art Society is a charity which provides artists with a national network of galleries.
The award will be presented by Jeremy Deller, who won the 2004 Turner Prize, in a ceremony at London's David Roberts Foundation on November 19.
