Blists Hill Victorian Town in Ironbridge, England has only two days left to beat off stiff competition for Britain's £100,000 Art Fund Prize. It's one of four museums that have been shortlisted for the prize (the others are in Belfast, Oxford, and Coventry), with the winner being selected by judges who will be looking at the results of a public vote.

Steve Miller, chief executive of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust, is asking Ironbridge fans to go online to www.artfundprize.org.uk and register their votes for Blists Hill Victorian Town. (Voting ends at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 18.)

Broadcaster Kirsty Young heads the judging panel. She reports that "it has been a very challenging task to select only four to go forward to the short list. Our visits have been eye-opening, and the exceptional quality of the long list has meant that we've been spoiled for choice."

The winer of the £100,000 Art Fund Prize will be announced on June 30 at the Royal Institution of British Architects in London.
