Many congratulations, and thank you to everyone who submitted pieces this year.

 

Following the success of the Mull Highland Games Art Prize 2021 we will be holding a similar contest in 2022, but with an additional incentive for participating this year.

The winners of each category will each receive a prize of £200.

However, the judges will also select up to five of the 2D entries for submission to the inaugural Highland Art Prize exhibition and competition as part of the Royal National Mòd, scheduled to take place in Perth from 14th-22nd October 2022 at the City Contemporary Art Gallery in Perth.

The Highland Art Prize will award a cash prize of £1,000 for the winning artwork (to be shared between the artist and his/her corresponding Art Association or gallery), and it is hoped that there will be a subsequent mentoring or exhibition opportunity for the winning artist through a national institution.

The theme for this year’s competition is ‘Island Gatherings’.

The categories for entry are:

  1. Under 18 years old 2D
  2. Under 18 years old 3D
  3. Over 18 years old 2D
  4. Over 18 years old 3D

All entries must be delivered to Tobermory on Friday 8th July (or by prior arrangement) for display around the town from 11th – 21st July. Entries may be offered for sale subject to the wishes of the artist, with sales being completed after judging.

All entries should be ready for hanging/display, labelled with the artist’s name, age, the artwork’s title and sale price if applicable.
