Call for entries!

"The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition one of the largest and most prestigious prizes for contemporary watercolour painting in the UK."

The aim of this competition is to inspire and provide opportunity for anyone wanting to celebrate the diversity held around watercolour and water-based media. The style you choose is completely up to you, they want your artwork to be your own individual style and represent whatever you choose.

Will your piece be abstract, contemporary or traditional? Or maybe it will be a mixture of the three. 

With a fee of £15 per artwork, it could be worth entering a couple. This competition is hugely popular with artists, gallery visitors and readers of The Sunday Times. I imagine there will be a huge mixture of styles and capabilities  which always makes a competition more fun and exciting. 

You can enter up to 4 artworks and entry is online, you can enter up to 5pm on June 25th 2018. 

"The panel of judges will initially review entries through a digital submission process. Following this, a maximum of 250 shortlisted artists will then be invited to deliver their actual works on 13 July 2018, from 10 – 4pm and 14 July 2018, from 10 – 5pm, to the Federation of British Artists (FBA), 17 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5BD, for final judging."

Make your work interesting, allowing it to stand out to the judges. Think of the most imaginative artwork you've seen and inspire yourself to create something to that standard. Your watercolour time is now! 


First Prize – £6,000
Second Prize – £3,000
Third Prize – £1,000

There will also be an exhibition held at Mall Galleries, London.
