Artists, are you looking for a new challenge in 2020? Why not try entering some painting competitions this year? We’ve stumbled across the Jackson’s Painting Prize which could be a great opportunity for you.
Call for entries are now open for this fantastic competition and they remain open until the 4th March 2020. The best bit is, there are some excellent prizes up for grabs too! Jackson’s state that this painting competition was, ‘established to champion exceptional artworks made by international creators at all points in their career’. Therefore, even if you’re just starting out, there is no excuse to not give it a go. Furthermore, artists of any age can enter too.
There are several prizes available for the winners. The overall first prize is awarded an astounding £5,000. There are also prize pots of £1,000 each for both the Peoples Choice Award and the Emerging Artist Award. Additionally, there are six category prizes with awards of £500 each. The categories are as follows;
- Still Life/Botanical
- Abstract/Not Representational
- Scenes of Everyday Life
The winners (apart from the Peoples Choice Award) will be selected by a judging panel of six well-known names within the art industry.
There are some key points you should be aware of if you’re considering entry to the Jackson’s Painting Prize. Firstly, each artist can submit up to five pieces of work. However, a positive is that unlike many other art competitions, there is no age limit on the pieces you submit.
To enter your works, an image of your work will need to be uploaded to the Jackson’s Painting Prize website, ensure you’re not including the mount or frame in your image though as your entry will be disqualified if you do!
