Pro-loco Art Competition 2020

This year sees the 41st Pro Loco Art Competition held in Matlock Bath. This is an annual competition and open to everyone aged 14 and above. The main rule is that the finished piece must depict a scene or artefact of Matlock Bath.

All entrants must register to enter using the on line entry form below or by requesting a paper copy of the entry form from the Clerk.

Entrants will be required to 'drop off' their work at a central location in Matlock Bath following the closing date. Artwork may be dropped off before this date by arrangement - further details will be given in September. The work will then be displayed in the Pump Room of the Pavilion on a Saturday and Sunday in October (date to be confirmed), where members of the public will be invited to vote for their favourite.

There will be only one category this year (from aged 14 and above)

Prizes will be awarded as follows:

Adult (14 and above) - 1st Prize - £150, 2nd Prize - £100, 3rd Prize - £50.

"Best Villager" Prize - £50 - this will be awarded to a resident of Matlock Bath

Most Artistic, Innovative Design - £50

Parish Council Award - £50 - voted for by Matlock Bath Parish Council.

Highly Commended - £30 - 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! We will also accept 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.

All entrants will also be asked to submit a short paragraph on how they achieved their finished piece, ie what materials and techniques they have used as well as a photograph of the work (to be used on our website).

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

This year we have decided that we will not make it compulsory that the 1st Prize winner donates their artwork to the Parish Council to be put together with all previous winners. We accept that entrants may wish to sell their work and have therefore made it optional to donate your work to the winners collection or not. If you decide not to, photographic evidence will be taken of your work.

Should you have any queries regarding this competition, please contact the Clerk - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 07914 420545.
