What is on offer?
Maritime Art Prize – Call for entries !
The Mission to Seafarers Maritime Art Prize and Exhibition is returning once again in 2020!
Artists are invited to respond to the theme ‘The Relationship of Humanity to the Sea’. Last year the exhibition featured 90 finalists whose work was selected from over 250 entries and who came from as far afield as Germany, Spain, Bangladesh, Pakistan, USA and New Zealand.
Entrants compete for a share of $20,00 in prize money across five categories – Maritime Art Award, Best Traditional, Runner-Up, Emerging Artist and People’s Choice Award.
Amongst the traditional beauty of oil paintings and watercolours of maritime subjects in the exhibition, artists have demonstrated a move to include more contemporary works in recent years.
Call for Entries: 1st May to 31st August
Exhibition Opening Night and Awards Ceremony (invitation only): Thursday 1st October 6pm
Exhibition Friday 2nd to Sunday 18th October 10am-8pm
