Altrincham lawyers put up £5,000 prize fund for best young artists

DEADLINE EXTENDED

We have been overwhelmed with the amount of interest and the number of entries into the FS Legal Art Prize 2019.

Due to the popular demand from young artists across the North West, we have taken to decision to extend the deadline to Monday September 30th

The competition invites local artists, aged 16 – 25 years old, to create a unique piece of art on canvas, board or paper. The artwork must be an interpretation of the theme of FIVE – in celebration of FS Legal’s fifth anniversary. The pieces can be created using any medium, including pastels, watercolour, oil or acrylic paint, and executed to any size.

The judges will be looking closely at the artist’s interpretation of the theme and how this is conveyed through the artwork.

The winning artist will receive a £3000 cash prize, while four runners up will each be awarded £500 for their creation.

The competition will be judged by Bill Clark, owner of Clark Art in Hale, a specialist in L.S. Lowry and modern British art, along with two Partners from FS Legal, Julia Norris and Kit Sorrell.

An exclusive, invitation only evening will be held on Thursday 17th October at Clark Art where the winners and runners up will be revealed at a prize giving.
