Are you looking to raise your profile as an artist?
Glyndebourne - the world-class opera house in Sussex - have launched their annual Tour Art Competition. They are challenging new artists to submit an artwork based on the theme of ‘Lost and Found’ - a common thread in the three operas that are on tour in 2019.
Visual arts have always been an integral part of Glyndebourne and the annual Tour Art Competition offers a platform for new artists to raise their profile. New artists, aged 16+ with less than five years experience of showing their work are invited to submit one artwork by 5 July 2019. A panel of judges will consider the creativity and technical execution of the artworks and how well each piece interprets the brief, before selecting a shortlist and the eventual winning entry.
The winning artist will see their artwork on the cover of 10,000 copies of the Glyndebourne Tour Programme distributed at Glyndebourne and theatres in Canterbury, Milton Keynes, Liverpool, Woking and Norwich. Their work will also be part of an exhibition, with all shortlisted works, at Glyndebourne this autumn.
As part of the prize, the winner will receive four free tickets to a world-class opera production at Glyndebourne during the Tour 2019. All shortlisted entrants will also win two free tickets.
Deadline 5 July 2019
