Searching for Artist of Year

THE search to find the most talented young artists is underway with the launch of Peak District Artisans’ Young Artist of the Year 2012.

Open to art students aged between 16 and 19, the competition aims to identify and give recognition to art students with outstanding talent. There are no restrictions on technique, materials or style. The work can be 2D or 3D, but it must be effectively reproduced in 2D printed form if required.

The overall winner will receive £200 in cash with prizes for second and third place.

The deadline for entries is Friday, June 8 at 6pm with the shortlist announced on June 22.
