PEOPLES’ CHOICE AWARD 2013
In addition to the judging process, there are 4 further opportunities to win a cash prize of £250 & participate in the Gala as all entrants are entered into the Peoples;’ Choice Award which invites your friends, family & the public to vote on their favourite entry of the past two months.
THE JUDGING PROCESS
The Judges are seeking to nominate artists who enter a piece of artwork that makes a statement. It is important that you can explain why your entry is a ‘Signature’ style or piece. ~Please provide further images that show your work hung in situ.
They will be looking for work that is not only visually powerful but conceptually sound & comprehensible. You must consider your presentation, both online & offline, ensuring that if selected as a Semi – Finalist or Peoples’ Choice Award winner that the work can be exhibited.
Remember that your entry, should you choose for it to be so, will be for sale on the DegreeArt website. Last year over half of the Semi Finalists’ work were purchased & added to DegreeArt’s clients’ collections
