Black Swan Arts in Frome is proud to announce the launch of the Black Swan Arts Young Open competition for 2020.

Now in its seventh year, the Black Swan Arts Young Open has become the most successful and prestigious art competition for young people between the ages of 8 and 19 years old, as well as the BIGGEST young art competition in the South West, attracting hundreds of entries from individuals, schools and youth groups. 

Entries to the 2020 competition will be judged, curated and displayed in one of the region’s leading contemporary art galleries and, as in previous years, prizes will be awarded in three age-group categories.  These unique prizes will be in the form of creative workshops with practising and successful artists as well as individual prizes and certificates, to the winners in each category.

If you are between 8 and 19 years old and would like the opportunity to have your work exhibited at the Black Swan Arts gallery, as well as judged to win a prize, get creating NOW because the deadline for entering your artwork into the competition is 28 February 2019.
