Derwent Art Prize 2021

Derwent Art Prize 2021

                                                        The Derwent Art Prize is now open for entries.

Derwent began creating pencils in the Lake District back in 1916. They even have a dedicated museum in Keswick, and run this competition to celebrate the very best artwork in the field. 
The competition welcomes all tools within this trade; from graphite pencils to coloured pencils, pastels, water solubles such as inktense and even charcoal can be used. 

British and international artists are invited to submit up to six pieces of 2D or 3D work, they have recently produced.

Judges will select winners, alongside a collection of 80 works to be exhibited at a gallery in central London in Spring 2022.

Not forgetting generous cash prizes will be awarded too, for the important People’s Choice Award, all the way up to First Place; who will also receive a year's supply of Derwent products.  

Closing deadline for entry is Tuesday 4 January 2022.
More information on how to enter can be found at Derwent ArtPrize

Compressed charcoal was developed in the 20th century to strengthen the natural structural weakness of Willow and Vine charcoal. To create compressed charcoal or charcoal pencils natural gum or wax binder is added to powdered charcoal. This makes the charcoal stronger to draw with and produce less dust. Many grades of this compressed charcoal can be found in stick forms or in the form of charcoal pencils.
