Update to the 2020 Annual Art Competition during COVID-19.
Unfortunately our Annual Art Competition for young people will not be going ahead in 2020. This is due to a number of measures which have been put in place due to Covid-19, making it infeasible to run the competition. These include:
- A limit on visitor numbers meaning we are not in a position to accommodate group visits to the venues which are open, thus preventing participation from school groups
- Maintaining visitor flow and on-way systems through our venues which prevents individuals sitting for periods of time drawing in the galleries
- A limit on the exchange of materials between staff and the public, so we cannot accept artworks as we normally do at our enquiry desks.
Any artworks already submitted are still in storage in our venues and will automatically be re-entered next year
