The competition is open to artists worldwide. Two-dimensional artwork in any media, including drawing, painting, printmaking and creative digital artwork is welcome.

Photography, except where incorporated into collage, is not acceptable.

To give more amateur artists the chance to exhibit, just ONE work per entrant will be accepted for exhibition in the Leisure Painter category. Please ensure you enter the correct category.

The Leisure Painter category is for amateur painters and The Artist category for more experienced amateur and professional artists.
