Coinciding with Tate Britain’s blockbuster show, Watercolour, The Sunday Telegraph launched a watercolour competition for non-professional artists residents of the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Republic of Ireland aged 18 years or over (carefuly read the terms and conditions).
The chosen theme is The Great British Landscape and the entrants are invited to submit jpegs of their works by e-mail (image files must be 300 dpi and be between 1MB and 2MB) or send photographs by post, in both cases accompanied by a brief description.
Only one photograph per entry and one entry per person will be accepted.
Paintings that have won any previous competitions are not eligible.
A selection of ten finalists will be contacted on April 6, 2011 and asked to submit their original work for the final round of judging.
The winner will be announced and their work published in The Sunday Telegraph on Sunday, April 24, 2011.
A beautifully crafted mahogany box of Winsor & Newton art materials worth £445, courtesy of Cass Art will be attributed to the winner and the other runners-up will receive each £10 Cass gift vouchers.
Deadline for entries to the Sunday Telegraph Watercolour Competition is midnight Wednesday March 23 2011.
