Info & Rules

Contest info


The King House Gallery is calling for entries for a brand-new edition themed "Seasons". The competition gives artists across the world the opportunity to showcase their work, participate in a unique virtual exhibition, join an exhibition in United Kingdom in 2021, cash prizes, as well as getting participation certificates to strengthen their art credentials.

 "There is always something about a specific season of the year that attracts people and makes them wait, linger - or dread it. At winter, it might be the grey and colder skies, the white snow, the extra need for skin contact and the longer darker nights. During spring, it could be the flowers, the colors, the promise of warmer and happier days. On summer you have the heat, the extra sunlight and possibly a shiny tanned skin tone to match it. And the autumn, with warm yellow and orange colors and the chiller sensation of change always in the air. "


"Seasons" invites all artists to share their feelings towards one or more seasons of the year. All visual art mediums welcome.
