2019

2018 was another amazing year for our Cover Competition with hundreds of entries - thank you to everyone who took part! We think Sarah Eden's winning entry 'A Quiet Word Between Friends' was a great choice for the cover.

We are now looking for the next painting to go on the cover of our Autumn/Winter 2019/20 catalogue which will be out in October, and this year we are making the Cover Competition even better with more prizes!

The prize amount has increased (see details below), plus we are introducing a new highly commended award to acknowledge two high-quality entries that didn't quite make the top three.

Your painting will feature on the cover of our catalogue and will be mailed out to tens of thousands of artists and seen by even more. The winner will have a brief bio and contact details printed on the inside cover of the catalogue, with a full bio and contact details featured on our website.

How to Enter

To enter the competition, fill out our entry form:

Submissions

Entries can be of any subject matter suitable for a catalogue cover, in any traditional medium (paint, pencil, pastel etc.). Photographs, sculptures, and digital paintings or other digitally-created artworks are not eligible for entry.

The entry must be your own original work. Please note: you must own the copyright to any painting you enter. You must ensure that there are no copyright infringements if copying a photograph/artwork published by a third party. We would need to see written permission from the originator if such an entry is received.

When entering your paintings, please make sure the photographs are clear and show your painting at its best. Any blurred or out-of-focus photographs will not be considered for the short list.

Tips for photographing artwork:

Please ensure that:

  • the picture is in focus
  • the photograph is taken straight on
  • there are no reflections
  • you crop the picture - we don't want any background (including mount)

The deadline for submissions is Sunday 7th July 2019.

The winner will be chosen from a shortlist of entries. The shortlist will be available online from Tuesday 30th July 2019. You will not be personally notified if your entry has made the shortlist. Visitors to our website will be able to vote for their top three entries.
