We’re celebrating 10 years of our Contemporary Arts Open Competition and this year, we’re bringing in some exciting new changes.

Our 2020 competition is offering three fantastic prizes, including:

– A £1,000 cash prize;

– £1,000 for fees towards a solo show in the 2021 Arts Festival, with support from Culture Warrington staff;

– A Highly Commended Prize offering a residency at Pyramid Arts Centre in 2021.

We’ve extended the submission location to within 60 miles of Warrington and are welcoming entries across all art forms, from sculpture to spoken word and more.

Entrance fees are also being waived to support artists during Covid-19.

We’re also delighted to welcome an incredible panel of judges from leading venues across the North West.
