RULES, GUIDELINES & SUBMISSION CRITERIA
Jackson’s Artist Opportunities exist to recognise and appreciate original, 2-dimensional fine art works in any painting or drawing media. Artworks for the competitions must be submitted by the artist who created it. Pure photography, computer generated or manipulated artwork and 3D sculptural works are not eligible for selection. Jackson’s Amateur Artist Prize is free to enter. Jackson's Open Painting Prize costs £5 per artwork to enter. All of Jackson's competitions are open to all artists of all abilities who are over 16 years of age apart from Jackson’s Open Painting Prize which is open to all ages. Drawings or paintings of an inappropriate or offensive subject matter will be removed from the competition.
All work must be your own intellectual property. This means we will not accept artworks that directly copy other people's work (this does not include artistic interpretations) or works that are made from a tutorial.
We are not accepting entries that have previously won a major competition or that have been extensively exhibited in any established galleries.
Jackson’s Art Supplies may ask for artworks to be sent for further inspection and consideration before or outside of longlist / shortlist / prize winning selection. The winning work must be available for viewing, if requested, and must be like the digital photo submission.
We may require a photo of the winner standing in front of their painting for publicity purposes. Please do not submit an image if you do not have access to the original work. Jackson's Art Supplies will advise on how the prize winner's photograph should be composed.
