The Exchange


Our annual open submission art competition for young people aged 11-19 years.

Inspired by exhibiting artist Joy Gregory the theme for this year’s Young People’s Art Prize is self-portrait.

There are three age categories 11-13, 14-16, and 17-19 years old and a special prize, the Visitors’ Vote, which will be awarded by the Gallery at the end of the exhibition to the artist whose work received most votes by the public.
