Entries: Things you need to know
All work submitted will be assessed by a selection panel of judges which will include professional artists.
The initial round is judged digitally. Judges will only have access to the image of your work, together with the title, dimensions, type of work, media and any accompanying information supplied by the entrant regarding display of the work.
Shortlisted artists will be contacted to say that they have been shortlisted and asked to deliver their work to The Whitefriars Studios (Whitefriars Avenue Wealdstone HA3 5RN) between the dates and times which will be specified. The competition organiser cannot guarantee to be able to accommodate alternative arrangements.
Up to 30 finalists will be chosen by the judges to exhibit. It is not guaranteed that a shortlisted work will be selected for display; both the artworks chosen and how they are displayed will be at the judges’ sole discretion, and the judges’ decision will be final.
If a shortlisted work is not able to be displayed, the organiser will contact the entrant regarding pick up of the artwork as appropriate.
The exhibition at the Whitefriars Studios Gallery will showcase finalist artwork.
