Leicestershire and Rutland Young Artists Open Competition 2014

Information

Charnwood Arts and Creative Hinckley have announced an exciting new partnership project to celebrate the young artistic talent in our region.

The Leicestershire and Rutland Young Artists Open Exhibition invites entries from any young artist aged between 8 and 19 who lives or works in either of the two counties.

All works will be judged by a panel of experts and prizes awarded in three age categories: 8 to 11 years, 12 to 15 years and 16 to 19 years.

These include a first prizes of £100 in the 8-11 years category; £200 in the 12-15 category and £300 in the 16-19 section. Runner-up prizes in the three categories are, respectively, £50, £100 and £150. A special graphics prize in the 16-19 years category will be a week's mentoring within a major regional design company.

As many entries as space allows will be exhibited at the Atkins Gallery in Lower Bond Street, Hinckley between Wednesday 2 July – Friday 1 August 2014.

One piece of unframed artwork can be entered per young person and may be produced in any 2D medium including digitally generated works and photography. Individual entries only.

All work selected for the exhibition will be framed by the Gallery so we therefore require each entrant to strictly adhere to the one of the following sizes: A5 (148 x 210 mm); A4 (210 x 297 mm - the size of a standard sheet of printer paper) or A3 (297 x 420 mm)

Entries can be handed in at collection points in Loughborough, Hinckley, Leicester, Oakham, Market Harborough or Coalville.

Further details of collection days and times, together with full competition regulations can be found online at:
