Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

The 3rd Chaiya Art Awards, the UK’s biggest art competition exploring and illuminating spirituality has launched its new theme AWE + WONDER and offers a top prize of £10,000. 

This biennial theme based competition is open to visual artists of all faiths, to those with none and everyone in between. These awards invite submissions from professional artists, students and amateurs of painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, mixed media, photography, video and installations in response to the theme, Awe + Wonder. 

A prestigious judging panel:

  • World renowned textile artist Kaffe Fassett; portraitist
  • President of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters Alastair Adams
  • International photographer Marcus Lyon;
  • Distinguished curator Dr Christo Kefalas; and
  • Multi-disciplinary artist and winner of Sky Arts ‘Landmark’ prize Favour Jonathan

will be looking for originality and technical excellence, theme interpretation and emotional impact.

For the finalists Chaiya delivers a ten-day exhibition in central London. Owing to the success of the two previous awards, it will not only display work at London’s prestigious gallery@oxo, but also the huge Bargehouse alongside it. So more artists and bigger pieces can be seen by the thousands of visitors who come to the Winners Exhibitions.  EARLY BIRD ENTRIES CLOSE 15 JUNE 2022.

The Chaiya Art Awards is not only passionate about elevating artists’ work into the public arena and encouraging emerging artists, it is also ardent about ending modern day slavery and trafficking. As a charity a percentage of all art work sold goes to UNSEEN UK.
