Hunt the new - join the hunt for the wild and wonderful, the surreal and sophisticated, the exhilarating and the grotesque, in the studios and workshops of University of the Arts London, as they open their doors to the postgraduate Summer Shows. What will you discover?

Following the exciting undergraduate shows earlier this summer, the University's six renowned Colleges - Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Chelsea College of Art and Design, London College of Communication, London College of Fashion and Wimbledon College of Art - invite you to explore their postgraduate shows for the chance to spot the most exciting new talent.

The insider's tip for seeing the summer shows is to make sure you visit the postgraduate section of the summer shows schedule; often overlooked outside of the art crowd, these are the shows to spot some of the most promising new artists, making them a bit of a hidden gem. Catch a glimpse of this insider's secret from 31 August 2011 until mid-September. Click here to plan your art exploration.

Join in the hunt for new talent at University of the Arts London's Summer Shows Season 11 and share your finds on Twitter, Facebook and Flickr to be in with a chance of winning one thousand pounds' worth of original artworks by some of the most hotly-tipped new artists and designers.
