Black Swan Young Arts Open 2018

March 17 - April 7

Black Swan Arts Centre in Frome, Somerset is proud to announce the launch of the Black Swan Arts Young Open competition for 2018.

Now in its fifth year, the Black Swan Arts Young Open has become the most successful and prestigious art competition for young people between the ages of 8 and 19 years old in the South West, attracting hundreds of entries from individuals, schools and youth groups.

Entries to the 2018 competition will be judged, curated and displayed in one of the region’s leading contemporary art galleries and, as in previous years, prizes will be awarded in three age-group categories.  These unique prizes will be in the form of one-to-one, individualised, creative workshops with practising and successful artists.

So, if you are between 8 and 19 years old, would like the opportunity to have your work exhibited at the Black Swan Arts Centre, as well as judged to win a prize, get creating NOW because the deadline for entering your artwork into the competition is: 16 February 2018. To enter visit: http://competition.blackswan.org.uk/competitions/black-swan-young-arts-open-2018

We want to see original artwork in as many mediums or processes as possible; the more unique the better: painting, ceramics, modelling, drawing, inks, photography, video, animation, textiles, collage, linocuts, screen-prints, lithographs, collographs, mono-prints, sculpture, waxwork, graphic design, illustration, glass blowing, mosaics, stained glass, metalwork, woodwork, 3D printing and much more!

The selection committee has been closely involved with the competition since it started and they know the extraordinary level of work the young talent in the area can produce.
