We are delighted to launch a brand new Art Competition for Mote Park.

This year, we're looking for your best original artworks that celebrate this beautiful park. You can work in any medium, including sculpture and textiles, but no photography please.

There are two categories: Under 18’s and Over 18s, with prizes for each:

  • Over 18s Winner - £250; Runner up - £100
  • Under 18s Winner - £100; Runner up - £50

We will also be selecting up to 10 entries from each category to feature in a special exhibition in the autumn.

This will be held in the new Mote Park Learning Space from Saturday 21st October – Friday 3rd November, and will be open to the public and free to visit.

There will be a special preview event for those selected to exhibit, where we will also announce the overall competition winners.
