The WAC Awards is an open competition for contemporary visual art that is gaining praise and respect in Britain and abroad. It was established in 2012 by a group of artists and their friends in Wells, the beautiful cathedral city in the South-West of England. But an idea that came to life around kitchen and dining tables has already established a strong presence in the London art world and is drawing artists from places as diverse as Australia, Azerbaijan, India, Italy, Korea, Japan and the United States, as well as all over Britain.
Deadline for entry is Monday 2 July 2018: 5:00pm
Submission is via online entry.
The competition is open to all artists aged 18 and over and from all over the UK and the world.
Artists may enter up to three works.
Entries can be any medium – painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, installation or video. Work should not exceed 2m in any dimension when framed.
We regret that we cannot exhibit digital work unless all necessary equipment is provided by the artist (for example: monitors, screens, DVD players, headphones etc)
Entry Fee is £15 per work or £12 per work for current students.
