In addition to this short listed entries will be invited to exhibit at the Vallum Gallery at the University of Cumbria Brampton Road Campus in partnership with the University of Cumbria's Institute of Arts from 21 March 2019 - 25 April 2019. The 2017 exhibition attracted over 800 visitors.
This year we are introducing a theme for the submitted works: Climate Change. This may be part of the concept of the work, in the materials used or it might have inspired the work in more subtle ways.
Artists aged between 15-24 working in any visual art media can apply and judging will be based on photographs of your work alongside an artist statement. Your contact details are for Eden Arts use only and will not be made public.
If you require a large format text form or would prefer to apply on paper please get in touch.
