Pro-loco Art Competition 2018

The Pro Loco Art Competition is now CLOSED for entries.

This year sees the 39th Pro Loco Competition held in Matlock Bath. The competition is open to all age groups. The main rule of the competition 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.

All finished work has now been 'dropped off' and all work will be displayed on Saturday 22nd and 23rd September 2018 in the Pump Room of the Pavilion, where members of the public will be invited to vote for their favourite. Voting will open at 1.00 pm-4.00 pm.

Prizes will be awarded as follows:

Adult (17 and above) - 1st Prize - £150, 2nd Prize - £100, 3rd Prize - £50.

Junior Artist - Aged 4-7 and Aged 8-11 - prizes awarded in the form of gift vouchers.

Young Artist (Aged 12-16)- prizes will be awarded in the form of gift vouchers.

"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 - £25 - 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 have been 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).

For all budding artists, the competition will open again in the New Year. The rules of the competition are attached - please ensure you read these rules prior to entering.
