Event History

This is the Third Year this event has run, and this year the finalist exhibition will be held at the stunning location of Chester Cathedral.

What Makes this event different?

Unlike other art competitions, the VAO includes categories for every specialism, giving artists of various disciplines the opportunity for recognition.

The VAO art competition is a not for profit event open to both amateur and professional artists both UK and international-based. The aim is to give artists the ultimate platform to develop their passion and career in the arts sector. VAO finalists will benefit from exhibiting, selling and showcasing their work to art critics and art buyers alike at the finalist exhibition.


There are five categories to apply to:-  Painting / Mixed Media / Printmaking - Illustration / Drawing - Sculpture - Photography - Young Artist (Under 24)


Cost - Each entry is £15.00 per submission, and £10.00 for entrants under 24 years old.


There are no age restrictions - all welcome to apply!
