What makes this lockdown competition different?

This is not a one day competition. The basis of the competition is that it will run for several weeks during the lockdown and you will be required to submit an artwork each week.

Each week you will be given a theme to paint/create in any medium of your choice and you will need to submit an image on-line of the work for judging by the deadline which will be Saturday Midnight each week. All artwork needs to be sent to

Each work will be individually marked and your scores will be rolled up to make a final grand total to find the winners. You will be notified of your scores but you will need to be patient so that we get it right.

No-one will be knocked out in the early rounds so there will be plenty of time to catch up making it all inclusive until the end.

Further details on how you will receive the weekly themes and a Q&A section will be added to help explain any unanswered questions…….

Competition Rules

  • Entrants must be the actual artists or could face disqualification
  • The judge’s decision will be final in all matters
  • Winners actual works will need to be seen for authenticity

We expect all entrants to enter into the spirit of competition given the charitable nature of the event and sponsor, so please no photographs of the Mona Lisa with a moustache, it’s been done before.

A final Lockdown Party Show will be considered in due course.

Best of luck everyone.
