In 2012 Price was in residence at Wysing Arts Centre. In 2012 (until 2013) she became the first artist-in-residence at the Rutherford Appleton Space Laboratory in Oxfordshire.

Price was nominated for the 2012 Turner Prize, exhibiting three video installations at Tate Britain. On 3 December 2012, she was announced as the winner for her twenty-minute video installation The Woolworths Choir of 1979. The Guardian art critic declared the "focus and drive of Price's work, the cutting and the atmosphere, mark her out".

Price says her videos take a year to make. She explained "I use digital video to try and explore the divergent forces that are at play when you bring so many different technological histories together... I’m interested in the medium of video as something you experience sensually as well as something you might recognise."
