Cornish Landscape Painting Competition
In association with Healey's Cyder Farm in Cornwall and Cornwall Today Magazine, Newlyn School of Art is launching a Cornish Landscape Painting Competition for non professional artists.
The winner of the competition will win the opportunity to have their painting displayed on the label of one of Healeys' Cyder 'Classic' range bottles on sale to the public and they will also recieve a £500 cash prize. The runner up will receive a voucher for a three day landscape painting course at Newlyn School of Art.
“Our range of artists’ labels will showcase Cornwall’s art to hundreds of thousands of people who would not ordinarily see it,” said Kay Healey. “Information about the artist will be placed on the back or neck label and further details about them will be displayed in our shop. Effectively, buying a bottle will mean buying a limited edition print of an original painting.”To enter, artists are being asked to submit a photographic copy of an original work on the theme of‘Cornish Landscape’.
If you would like to enter download the Artist Submission Form from the bottom of the following page of Healey's Cyder Farm website - you can find the full terms and conditions on that page of the Healey's Cyder farm site. Paintings can be any size but should be in a square format. The competition is open to anyone over the age of 18. Entrants can be either a resident of Cornwall or have been a visitor to Cornwall.
Paintings should be submitted by the deadline of 5pm on Friday 18th November, 2016 and ten paintings will be shortlisted in early November of 2016. The 10 shortlisted artists will be requested to bring or deliver the actual paintings to the Cyder farm in early November for professional photographing and displaying alongside the paintings by leading artists from Cornwall who are also tutors at Newlyn School of Art.
Paintings depicting children or paintings that could be interpreted as having been painted by a child cannot be accepted for this competition due to the winning entry being displayed on an alcoholic beverage bottle. Photos should be in high resolution jpeg format, suitable for printing on A4 photo paper and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org , with ‘Artist Label Competition’ in the subject heading. Alternatively, they can be printed onto A4 photo paper and posted to: Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm,Penhallow, Truro, TR4 9LW. Please clearly mark the envelope ‘Artist Label Competition’.
