Works on Paper 2016 annual competition

In 2015, Stiwdio Maelor started an annual competition, the aim of which is to enable an artist to win an opportunity to complete a residency at Maelor. Each year a different technique/medium is chosen. 2015’s winners were David Begley (artist film) and Sue Mara (photography).

The two competitions for 2016 is: Works on paper and Poetry.

Works on paper is for visual artists who work on or with paper. Any medium (paint, print, drawing, etc.) can be used as long as it is on paper. The winner will be selected by Gini Wade – Printmaker and Illustrator who trained at Central School of Arts and Design (now Central St Martins), Aberystwyth University and the Tamarind Institute.

The prize for each award is a two week residency at Stiwdio Maelor with gift vouchers from local businesses (see below for a list of businesses who are supporting this award – more businesses are being added each week).
