Dear Member,

We are looking for all our members to search through their art, or create something specially, to enter into this great, new look, club competition before the closing date 30th April 2015. We want you all to have a go. Never before have we run this on a prize competition basis. We are extremely grateful to have such a fabulous prize thanks to our sponsor Bristol Fine Art.

There is no subject to restrict your creativity, we just need your artwork to be eye-catching and colourful. The exhibition publicity has to work hard and make people want to come and see the exhibition. It needs to be a testament to the quality and professionalism the exhibition will have on offer. We won’t necessarily use the whole artwork – the designer will select an appropriate excerpt for the maximum visual impact. 
You can enter one artwork in the medium of your choice, with one proviso - as the winning entry will be hung in the exhibition, it must comply with the normal entry terms and conditions that apply to the open exhibition itself. There are no entry fees for this competition and the winning artwork will have automatic free entry to the exhibition. If you are successful, you can still enter your full quota of art into the exhibition as normal. Also don’t worry if you don’t have internet access, you can simply take a photo and post it to us if you need to.

The winner will be selected by a panel from the committee and headed up by our Club President Neil Murison RWA

The winning artist will be notified within a few weeks of the closing date. The result will be announced on the website and at the June club meeting. The prize presentation will be made by our generous competition sponsor Bristol Fine Art at the Open Exhibition preview evening.

A new feature of the competition this year is that your artwork will not be created in vain as photos of every artwork entered will be displayed both in a special gallery on the club website and also on a prestigious display board at the entrance to the exhibition to welcome all our exhibition visitors.

Please note: This competition is open to members only.
