Celebrating artist talent in Yorkshire!

Are you Yorkshire’s next up-and-coming Banksy or David Hockney?

Hoping to get some exposure for your works of art? If so, you could be in with a chance of winning £400 in art supply shopping vouchers and have your work showcased at our flagship national showroom in Leeds!

Whether you’re a professional artist, a student studying to become one, or simply someone who creates beautiful art in your spare time, we’d love to shine the spotlight on you.

The campaign is open to artwork of all kinds, whether that be traditional paintings, photography, landscape and urban sketches or digital art mastery. As long as your artwork can be hung on a wall and is family-friendly, we’d love to see it! Simply upload a photograph or digital copy of your favourite personal artwork created using the form below and tell us a little bit about the piece and how you created it.

The closing date for entries is midday on Friday 12th July. We’ll then create a shortlist of finalists who will be open to a public vote and judged by an expert panel. The winning artist who receives the most public and judges’ votes will have their work showcased at our showroom in Leeds and receive £400 in art supply shopping vouchers. £75 and £25 in vouchers will go to second and third place respectively.

We’ll host an exhibition evening in the summer with our finalists, and the winning artwork will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to our chosen charity, St Gemma’s Hospice, who we have been supporting now for many years.

We look forward to seeing all of your entries! Good luck!
