2020 ART COMPETITION & ONLINE SELLING EXHIBITION
We had a fantastic response with over 700 entries from across the UK and Europe, thank you to all the artists who entered. We are most grateful to the judges: Stewart Geddes and Ann Blockley who did a brilliant job under very difficult circumstances. A huge thank you to our prize sponsors, without whom the competition would not exist.
This is the first online version of the competition and we hope you will enjoy browsing the exhibition and purchasing the work. You can choose to view the gallery either as a grid or a list using the two options at the top of the gallery page. If you choose ‘List’ then you’ll see more details about the image displayed ie size and medium. Otherwise this information is available if you click on ‘Details’ when viewing as a grid.
We would ask you to read the guidance provided below before using the gallery for the first time- there is some very important information provided. However, if you’re happy that you’ve already read this then feel free to click on the ‘Exhibition Gallery’ link below. Make a note of the entry numbers you’re most interested in and then use these to find them again, quickly, using the website Search button.
If you have any questions or need any help please email us at email@example.com
(please click on any of the artists images to go directly to their page in the exhibition gallery)

Browse the Gallery
To view the gallery please click on the ‘Exhibition Gallery’ buttons. This will take you to the main gallery pages and you can scroll through the items at your leisure. You can choose to view the gallery either as a grid or a list using the two options at the top of the page. Each of our 200 featured artists has a ‘Main Entry’ loaded – some artists submitted more than one item and their additional images are also visible when you click on ‘Details‘. The ‘Main Entry’ will always be the one shown first in the tile gallery for each artists ‘Details’ view. Details of the medium and size of the ‘Main Entry’ piece can be seen either by viewing the gallery as a List or by clicking on ‘Details’ for the main image.
Within the Gallery you can vote for your favourite pieces as well as purchase them. If you are interested in purchasing items please make sure that you view the guidance covered in our ‘How to Purchase items’ section of this page. However, please note that only the ‘Main Entry’ for each artist is for sale directly through this online process. If you are interested in any of the additional items you can email us via the link on the ‘Details’ page.
Voting for the ‘Visitors Choice Award’
You can vote for your favourite pieces by clicking on ‘Details’ for an individual artist and then clicking on the small heart where it says ‘Vote for this piece’. Once you’ve voted for a piece the heart shape will be filled in red. You can vote for as many of the ‘Main Entries’ as you like but you can only vote once for each artist featured- even from different devices! We’d ask that you select, say, your favourite 5 artists images- remembering that there are 200 in total to view. The winner of the Visitors Choice award will be the artist whose ‘Main Entry’ gets the most votes by the close of the exhibition. If you change your mind you can also ‘untick’ the heart.
How to Purchase items through the Online Gallery.
The ‘Main Entry’ for each artist is for sale directly through the website – except where shown as ‘Not for Sale’. The online process for purchasing items allows you to select the item you wish to purchase and pay for it using a credit/debit card. Items which have already been sold will appear as ‘Out of Stock’.
Additional items for each artist are shown in the tile gallery when you click on ‘Details’ for the ‘Main Entry’. Please note these items cannot be purchased directly through our online process. If you are interested in purchasing these additional items you can email us using the link on each page and we’d be happy to provide any further information.
We strongly recommend that you read the Frequently Asked Questions below before proceeding with a purchase.

Unfortunately, due to the change in circumstances whereby the exhibition was originally going to be held at Little Buckland Gallery but is now entirely online- we have not got details for every piece as to whether the item is framed or unframed. However, we can confirm that whether the item has been framed or not has been taken into consideration in the pricing of the piece by the artist.
