Qube Arts Open Competition

Qube Gallery hosts an annual Qube Open Art Competition. This increasingly popular event attracts artists from across the country, with entries reflecting a set theme. Anyone is eligible to enter and works can be of any medium, 2D, 3D or digital.

A £500 cash prize is awarded to the winning artist, decided by an independent panel of judges. There is also a People’s Choice Prize for the artist with the most public votes. The winner of this will receive their own 4 week exhibition at Qube the following year.

An exhibition of shortlisted entries will be held at Qube and the winner of the Best in Show prize will be announced at a Prize Giving evening at the beginning of the exhibition. This evening always draws a big crowd and is a great opportunity for artists to meet and network with others.

We are now accepting entries for this years competition! The theme for 2018 is ‘Our Planet’. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 31st July and the exhibition of shortlisted entries will run from 6th September to 30th October.
