mv-awards-2015_logoArtists are invited to submit work to any one (or more) of the categories and the relevant judge will select three artists from that category to exhibit in a high-profile mixed exhibition at the Bridport Arts Centre from 24th October – 21st November 2015.

The Marshwood Arts Awards is the third in a series that began in 2008. Designed to highlight and promote the wealth of creativity in the South West, the Awards are divided into six categories

  • Painting & Drawing – 2015 Judge: Philip Sutton RA
  • Sculpture & 3D – 2015 Judge: David Worthington
  • Fashion & Textiles – 2015 Judge: Harriet Wallace-Jones
  • Photography & Digital Media – 2015 Judge: Matilda Temperley
  • Furniture & Works in Wood – 2015 Judge: Rupert Senior
  • Ceramics & Glass – 2015 Judge: Christopher Taylor

Along with the three artists chosen from each category, there will also be an online public vote to choose another entrant to display their work in the exhibition.
Two collectors, Lord Bath of Longleat and Sarah Wild of Puncknowle Manor Estate, will each choose a work from the selected exhibition to receive a ‘Collector’s Award’.

The judges are also invited to exhibit a piece of their work alongside those whose work they have chosen.

Past judges have included John Hubbard, Kate Malone, John Makepeace, Caroline Broadhead, Tim McPherson, Emily Young and Roger Mayne.

The Marshwood Arts Awards exhibition, combining work from the judges with that of the selected entries, is a unique and much admired bi-annual exhibition.
