    The Artist and Leisure Painter magazines announce the launch of the international Patchings Open Art Competition 2015. Painters and artists working in two dimensions in all media are invited to submit their work for this prestigious art competition, one of the UK’s longest established and most inclusive.

    There are two main categories:

    • Leisure Painter: for beginners, hobby painters and less experienced amateur painters

    • The Artist: for professionals, semi-professionals, art students, art tutors and experienced amateur painters

    Only original work will be considered and paintings based on reference photographs must have been taken by the artist or used with the permission of the photographer. Photography, except where incorporated into collage, is not acceptable. No entry should be larger than 120x150cm when framed (canvases do not need to be framed).

    The entry fee of £16 (approx. 25 USD) covers up to three entries of two-dimensional works in any media; only one work per entrant will be accepted for exhibition in the Leisure Painter category.


    The competition is open to artists worldwide.


    For the 2015 competition there are over £17,000 (approx. 26,500 USD) worth of prize awards. Over 60 individual prizes will be awarded to selected artists in both categories.

    Moreover, selected works will be exhibited in two separate galleries at Patchings Art Centre (north of Nottingham city) from June 4 to July 19, 2015.
