Pro-loco Art Competition 2016

The 2016 Pro Loco Art Competition is now closed!

This year sees the 37th Pro Loco Competition held in Matlock Bath. The competition is open to all age groups.

The main rule of the competition is that your finished piece must depict a scene or artefact of Matlock Bath.

All entrants must register to enter using the on line entry form below. Entries must be made by 23rd September 2016. Entry can also be made by requesting an entry form from the Clerk.

After the closing date, all entrants will be contacted to arrange for their work to be 'dropped off' at a central location in Matlock Bath.

All work will be displayed on 8th October in the Pump Room of the Pavilion, where members of the public will be invited to vote for their favourite.

Prizes will be awarded as follows:

Adult - 1st Prize - £150, 2nd Prize - £100, 3rd Prize - £50.

Young Artist (Infants),Junior Artist (Juniors)& Young Artist (Secondary) - 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded in the form of gift vouchers.

There will be a prize for the "Best Villager" - this will be awarded to a resident of Matlock Bath - and a prize for the most artistic, innovative design. In addition, a prize will be awarded by the Parish Council - voted for by the Parish Council.

A special award will be given for the Highly commended. This winner will be selected by the Parish Council for entering something different or special.

The finished piece can be in a variety of media - including textiles, 3D, embroidery, ceramics - as well as drawing an painting - you can even do a collage! This year we are also accepting entries using digital art. Entrants choosing this media, must show that they have used the same sort of skill as traditional approaches. We would not accept the 'one click' solution whereby the software is doing all the work. If you have any queries regarding this approach, please contact the Clerk - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 07914 420545.

This year we are asking all entrants submit a short paragraph on how they achieved their finished piece, ie what materials and techniques they have used.

The rules of the competition are attached - please ensure you read these rules prior to entering.
