What Makes this event different?

This is one of the few opportunities where artists are invited to exhibit alongside their mentors which gives them greater recognition and status.

For more than ten years, the Marshwood Arts Awards biannual competition has brought together some of the UK’s most talented artists and makers and given them a platform to showcase their innovative creations. Artists from a wide range of categories are invited to submit work to be considered by selectors. The categories are Painting & Drawing – selected by Dave White; Photography & Digital Media – selected by Brian Griffin; Sculpture – selected by Tania Kovats and Applied Arts – selected by Kate Malone MBE and John Makepeace OBE.  The artists and makers chosen then exhibit alongside the selectors in a mixed selling exhibition at Bridport Arts Centre, from November 7th to December 8th. There are also cash prizes for the winners of each category, a collector’s prize and the winner of the John Hubbard Prize is chosen from the final exhibition.
