Apply to exhibit
How to apply to the selection panel
Please send 3 or 4 images as samples of your art, including a cv, to our selection panel for consideration for the event. The panel, which meets regularly between March and August, will cast their votes on your application. This decision is made by taking into consideration all of the art submitted and with an overall desire to ensure that there will be a good variety of art on display. All artists, either new or returning after an absence from Art for Youth, are reviewed by the selection panel. Please note that we do not judge by websites alone.
The exhibition is open to artists of any age. If accepted, you will be able to enter up to five works. Artists aged 35 or under are eligible for the annual Wates Foundation Diana Brooks Prize of £1,000. There is a hanging fee of £20 for all exhibiting artists, payable at the time of handing in work. Works may not exceed an outside dimension of 4½ feet without permission from the organisers, and all exhibited works must be for sale.
