    The Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize was created in 2005 by the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers and the Lynn Foundation to encourage the very best creative representational painting and promote the skill of draftsmanship.

    The range and quality of artists entering and exhibiting in the exhibition have grown each year and its reputation amongst artists is outstanding.

    Only original, two-dimensional works in any painting or drawing media, that have been completed in the last three years, and that have not been previously exhibited, are eligible. All works must be for sale, except commissioned portraits.

    Artists may submit up to four works. Works of art submitted must not exceed 72 inches (183 cm) in their largest dimension including frame. Works on paper must be framed. No metal or plastic frames will be accepted for judging. Works submitted must be available for exhibition.
