2nd Chaiya Art Awards Now Open – £10K TOP PRIZE!
The biggest biennial art awards in the UK exploring spirituality and faith through the visual arts is open for submissions until 18 October 2019.
The Chaiya Art Awards is open to any artist and covers all mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, mixed media, photography and video. We have also introduced an additional category for Community Groups, who can submit a collaborative piece. Artists are invited to be authentic and daring as they respond to the theme of ‘GOD is …’ This competition is open to people of all faiths, to those who have no belief in God, and to everyone in between. It’s about continuing an age old conversation in a modern setting through contemporary eyes.
The winners exhibition will take place at London’s prestigious South Bank gallery@oxo from 10-19 April 2020. The first Chaiya Art Awards proved hugely popular, with over 450 entries and more than 2,700 exhibition visitors. A respected panel will anonymously judge entries on Originality and Technical excellence, Theme Interpretation and Emotional Impact .
