Blackpool Civic Trust Art Competition 2019
This year Blackpool civic Trust is holding an art competition open to any non -professional artists, schools, colleges and youth groups with an aim to producing a calendar for 2020. We have booked Exhibition space at the Solaris, south shore, for the whole of July next year where the shortlisted artworks will go on display, and the final 13 winners will each receive their artwork framed as their prize.
The aim is to show a positive side to Blackpool. “What I love” could be anything from a local street or park, to a hobby, school, local attraction, something which would make an interesting picture.
All work to be completed in 2-D of any medium i.e. paint, pencil, pastel, collage, and to depict either a month of the year or an idea for a front cover. We would require being informed which months have been chosen so that there are not too many of any one.
We are looking to include works from infants, juniors, high schools, colleges, art societies, mental health groups, people with learning difficulties, amateur artists and youth groups. Each organisation can then make their own selections from the entries to put forward to the competition and these will go on display at the Solaris, where the winners will be chosen and announced in the first week of July.
We hope you would be interested in entering our competition and we will be happy to come and visit your organisation and speak to the participants
