Successful applicants will have their work on display at the Welbeck Estate gallery from 7th January to 5th February.

The theme is ‘H is for...’ - meaning an entry could be a picture of rolling hillsides, cosy houseboats, or perhaps artwork in half-cross-stitch.

Organisers say it could be a brand new piece made especially for the competition, or a treasured artwork that you made some time ago, a massive canvas or delicate miniature.

The only requirement is that it can be hung on the wall. Artwork for the exhibition will be selected by a judging panel.

Lisa Gee, Gallery Director, said: “We’re very excited to see entries from all artists – from those with years of experience and superb skill, to those that are brand new to art and just starting to experiment.”

“We know there’s a lot of talented artists out there and this is a fantastic opportunity to showcase their work.”

Artists will have the opportunity to win cash prizes up to £750.

Each artist can submit up to three pieces for the entry fee of £10. Entries from under 12s are free and will be exhibited separately in a special children’s show.

The gallery needs to receive all entries between 5th and 11th December.
