Eligibility:

Calling all 2020 North West Graduates!

Best of 2020

This year has been a pretty bad year and we want to launch 2021 off with a better start and a brand new show featuring 20 wonderful and talented graduates from across the North West.

We know many of you have not been able to have a physical degree show this year, or even have the chance to complete your final degree pieces due to the lack of access to facilities and support. We want to provide you the chance to get your work seen in a group show at AIR Gallery in March-April 2021 as a way of celebrating of the graduating class of 2020.

It is free to submit your work to this opportunity and you can submit up to 3 works for consideration. Ideally we would like to either be: your degree work, a response to this year or something you've made this year that hasn't been seen physically.

Each selected artist will recieve £100 towards transportation/preparation of their work. Prizes available to be won, sponsors to be annouced shortly. 

A selection of those unselected for the physical show will be showcased in a virtual exhibition runing alongside the main show.

What we are looking for:

The best of the best! It could be something new and exciting or a new take on a classic style. Don't hold back on us, submit your best stuff.

Any works that fall into the remit of contemporary art; this can but is not limited to painting, sculpture, mixed media, installation, collage, animation, photography, film, textile and printmaking.

Restrictions

You have to have studied at a university/educational institution in the North West. Please see our pack for full list of eligible institutions. 

You must have been in your final year of study at the start of 2020 and finished your course of study before Oct 2020.

BA & MA courses are eligible. 

The work must be complete and available for Mid-February 2021 ready to be delivered and installed March 2021. Dates may be subject to change due to local lockdowns.

Due to space limitations, we are asking all works to be under 1.5m max length on any one side.
