     Deadline:  September 6, 2014  (expired!)
     Contest's Website:  [link]

    Sponsored by ING Commercial Banking, the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition is a show of small works independently selected by six prominent figures from different areas of the art world: two artist, two collectors and two critics. The selectors will curate their own section of the exhibition, resulting in six smaller exhibitions within one, each with very distinct personalities.

    The uniqueness of having each work chosen by an eminent individual, unlike in a group selected show, has earned the exhibition an excellent reputation among art lovers and collectors alike.

    Work is selected by open submission and also from artists invited by the selectors. The works of lesser-known artists are given the opportunity to hang alongside the work of more established artists helping to connect hundreds of new artists with new audiences.

    The 2014 selectors are:

    Artists: Nicola Green and Emma Stibbon RA
    Collectors: Chris Ingram and Dr Giles Brown
    Critics: Simon Martin and Helen Sumpter

    Artists can submit up to six works which can be two or three dimensional. Painting, prints, drawing, photography and sculpture are all accepted. All works must be for sale and should not exceed 20” (50cm) in their largest dimension.

    The entry fee is £10 (approx. 17 USD) per work.


    Open to artists born or resident in the UK only.


    A number of purchase prizes will be awarded during the exhibition’s private view.

    An exhibition of selected works will take place at the Mall Galleries, London from 13 – 23 November 2014..
