Art comp launched

A GOLF Club is calling all amateur artists in the area to get into the swing for an art competition.

The competition launched by the KP Club is based on ‘The Yorkshire Wolds’, and will give budding artists the opportunity to enter a photograph, sketch, sculpture or painting to be judged by a panel of experts. This theme is to give people the chance to promote the stunning views that are right on their doorstep.

Paul Hannon, manager at the Kilnwick Percy club said: “This competition is a real chance for local amateur artists to showcase their work to a huge audience. All entries will be judged by our panel and the shortlist will be put on display at the KP Club, with the winner having the opportunity to exhibit more of their work.

“There is so much talent in the area already, but we are hoping to unearth some real hidden gems.

“The KP Club itself boasts a real fusion of art and contemporary design and we are delighted to be offering people the chance to be creative. We are also extremely pleased to be working with Bishop Burton College and the Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre on this project, who are sure to submit some fantastic pieces.”

The competition will close on 3 February.

Submissions at this stage must be a photograph of a chosen piece. Shortlisted candidates will be approached for the actual piece of artwork if they are successful in making the shortlist.

Judging and shortlisting will take place in mid February. Entrants can be of any age but must live within a 50 mile radius of the KP Club. Entry criteria can be found on the website – www.kpclub.co.uk

Entries should be submitted via email to submit@kpartcompetition.co.uk or in the post to KP Art Competition, c/o Lee Creative, 26 Priory Tec Park, Hessle, Hull, HU13 9PB.
