The Chaiya Art Awards are the UK largest awards exploring spirituality through the Visual Arts with a £10K Top Prize.  They are open to any artist until 18 October deadline and cover all mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, mixed media, photography and video.

We have also introduced an additional category for Community Groups, who can submit a collaborative piece. 

Artists are invited to be authentic and daring as they respond to the theme 'GOD is ...'  This competition is open to people of all faiths, to those who have no belief in God, and to everyone in between. It’s about continuing an age old conversation in a modern setting with contemporary eyes.  

The winners exhibition will take place at London’s prestigious South Bank gallery@oxo from 10-19 April 2020.

The first Chaiya Art Awards proved hugely popular, with over 450 entries and more than 2,700 exhibition visitors.  New to Chaiya 2020 will be an ‘affordable art fair’ over two days of the exhibition. We will invite artists in the exhibition to be present, to discuss, promote and sell their work.

A respected panel will anonymously judge entries on Theme Interpretation, Originality/Technical excellence,  and Emotional Impact .
