The Spark+Mettle Art Award 2015

Sigfrid Lundberg


We’re looking for talented artists (digital, graffiti, illustration, painting, photography, sculpture, animation—we’re pretty open) for an awesome exhibition we’re holding in early December 2015. The winning artwork (chosen by our very special guest judges) will receive the Spark+Mettle Art Award 2015 and will be publicly showcased in London.

 The Spark+Mettle Award is open to artists between the ages of 18 and 24. The theme of the exhibition will be ‘Mettle’ and all entrants will be required to attend an evening workshop on the theme on September 9, 2015.

 Please register your interest here with a link to your portfolio (the deadline to register your interest is Wednesday 26 August 2015)
