Enter glass art for Holt Festival prize

North Norfolk’s annual Holt Festival is inviting submissions for a range of art prizes. The Festival brings together music, comedy, literary events and an art programme each July.

Among the art prizes on offer is the Charlotte Fraser Ceramics & Glass Prize, worth £1,000. Entries must be made of ceramic or glass and measure no more than 58cm in any direction. Judging will be by Charlotte Fraser, who has awarded scholarships and bursaries to postgraduate students at the Royal College of Art and Royal College of Music for many years, along with artist, academic and arts adviser, Prof Polly Bins.

Other art prizes on offer are The Sir John Hurt Art Prize (£2,000), The Sworders Prize for Emerging Artists aged 19-23 (£750 and a commission-free Exhibition at The Fairhurst Gallery in Norwich), plus The Sworders Prize for Young Artists aged 16-19 (£500). Entries for the Emerging and Young Artists Prizes are automatically entered (free of charge) into the Sir John Hurt Art Prize.

All entries must be submitted online, from which a shortlist for each prize will be selected. The selected works will be included in the Shortlist Exhibition, from which the judges choose the winners.

The closing date for entries is midnight on Sunday 16 June 2024. The shortlist will be announced by midnight on Sunday 23 June. Holt Festival will charge 30% (25%+VAT) commission for works sold in the Shortlist Exhibition.

The Shortlist Exhibition opens at 6pm on Sunday 14 July at The Church Hall, Church Street in Holt, near to the Festival exhibition ‘German Expressionists & The Third Reich’ (opens 10am Saturday 13 July) and the Festival’s outreach programme exhibition (opens 10.30am Saturday 20 July).
