Essex Coast Art Competition launched

Essex Coast Art Competition. All ages and abilities welcomed

Essex County Council’s tourism body Visit Essex has announced The Essex Coast Art Competition. It’s free to enter and open to all ages and abilities.

Members of the public located in the UK are invited to submit their artistic interpretation of their favourite coastal place in Essex. Each digital image of artwork submitted will be assessed on the emotion and experience it conveys rather than its technical expertise.

The themes for ‘Your favourite coastal scene in Essex’ have been created to help inspire entrants and are open to your personal interpretation.

The Essex Coast: Experience the Unexpected: 
◦ Enjoy the flavours of the sea (local food and drink)
◦ Explore the endless landscapes (sunsets, salt marshes, wildlife, tranquility)
◦ Experience the wild side of Essex (experiences in natural environments, water sports, walking, cycling, extreme sports)

Artists wishing to enter the competition are encouraged to accompany their submission with a short written description.

Entries can be submitted to from now until the closing date on 31 January 2021. A shortlist of 10 of the best pieces of artwork will be selected to feature in a digital exhibition on our website in March 2021 and on social media platforms.

Full details on how to enter can be read here: terms and conditions
