ON LOCAL ARTISTS TALENT
Up-and-coming artists across Leeds have the unique opportunity to showcase their skill on a national scale and be crowned the best in Yorkshire, as a campaign launched to discover the region’s hidden talent.
Express Bi-folding Doors, is inviting Leeds artists aged 16 and over to submit their favourite creation to be in with the chance of winning the top prize and the exclusive opportunity to house and auction their collection at its showroom in Leeds.
In addition to being crowned Yorkshire’s Artist of the Year, the winner will receive £400 worth of art supply vouchers and have one of their pieces auctioned for charity to raise money for St Gemma’s Hospice.
The awards are open to artists of all levels, including professionals, students studying locally and those who create art for fun in their spare time as a hobby. The artwork submitted can be across a range of mediums so is tailor made for those who specialise in traditional paintings, photography, landscape and urban sketches or digital art mastery. The only condition is that the art must be able to be hung on a wall.
Budding Leeds artists hoping to be in with a chance of winning, simply need to upload a photograph or digital copy of a piece of art they have personally created and provide a brief summary of the inspiration behind their work. Entries can be submitted at www.expressbifolds.co.uk/local-artist-search
