Cover Art Competition

Want to put your artwork in front of 20,000 people?

We're looking for a piece of original artwork to feature on our Autumn/Winter 2019 programme cover.

This competition is open to all ages, abilities and all art forms, from illustration and graphic design to watercolour and oil painting, and beyond! You may already have a suitable piece, or you might want to create something entirely new - that’s up to you.

The artwork should be on the theme of Autmn or Winter – whatever your interpretation of that is. We are looking for something eye-catching and contemporary, which would appeal to a wide range of people. There’s no fee to enter, but you must live or work in Gloucestershire to be eligible.

If you haven’t seen our current cover design you can download a digital copy here.

The size and shape of the artwork isn’t that important, but bear in mind that we may need to crop the digital image to a square(ish) shape to make it fit.

We’d like the artwork submitted in high quality jpeg format – for non-digital artwork this will probably mean photographing your artwork in a way that captures it clearly. There are lots of guides online as to the best way to do this if you haven’t done it before.

Send submissions (or questions!) to by the extended deadline of 1st April 2019.


This initiative is supported by The Wilson, Gloucestershire’s premier art gallery and museum.
