Professional and amateur artists have until 10 July to submit work to National Open Art’s 20th annual competition.
Royal Academician David Remfry, former Vogue picture editor-turned-curator Robin Muir and the Tate’s Head of Learning, Programme and Resources Fiona Kingsman lead this year’s judging panel.
For the first time, a new miniatures category is being offered alongside categories in painting, drawing, original print, photography, wall hung installation, digital art and moving image. There is a separate children’s competition judged by celebrated writer and illustrator Chris Riddell.
Each entry is judged anonymously, making the competition one of the most democratic in the UK and Ireland.
This year’s finalists will be exhibited in NOA’s Winter Exhibition at Mercers’ Hall in October where the prizewinners will be announced.
The 500 long-listed entries from this year’s competition will be for sale through NOA’s website and at various exhibitions.
NOA16 is open for entries until midnight on 10 July 2016. Finalists will be announced in September, and the winners revealed on 27 October.
The competition costs £20 per adult entry, £5 per child entry.
