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).
