Artists also have the chance to show their work to a prestigious panel of selectors: Artist Support Pledge founder and artist Matthew Burrows; contemporary painter Dale Lewis; and artist-printmaker Nana Shiomi.

All shortlisted artists will be in the running to win generous prizes, including several cash prizes, a residency in Provence, France, one-on-one mentoring, and more.

The competition is open to all artists over the age of 18, working around the world in all mediums and styles. The entry fee is £15 per work or £10 per work for current fine art students aged under 26.
