DegreeArt.com is proud to announce the launch of this year’s a one of a kind competition providing emerging artists the opportunity to present their signature style to the Art World.
Private View and Award Ceremony: Thursday 5th August 6-9pm
Show Runs: Friday 6th – Sunday 15th August 12-6pm daily
Based on the success of last year’s Signature Awards, this year’s competition has broadened its entry criteria to allow artists working in ALL artistic fields to enter to win, among other prizes, the opportunity to exhibit at The DegreeArt.com Gallery in Vyner Street, London, in summer 2010. Unlike most competitions, The Signature Art Awards gives the artist free reign over the form and content. Whatever the medium, whatever the subject, The Signature Art Awards present an invaluable opportunity to get your unique creative vision out of the studio and onto the gallery walls.
All submissions will be reviewed by our panel of industry judges who will shortlist finalists in each category to exhibit their piece at the DegreeArt.com Gallery, situated in the heart of London’s thriving East End, art scene.
Ten artists from each of the four categories; Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Mixed Media will be display during the exhibition and an overall winner from each category will be announced at the exhibition’s Private View evening of Thursday 5th August.
One of the ten artists chosen in each category will be the winner of the public vote.
Prizes : The winners of each category will receive, among other goodies from the award sponsors, a year’s representation by DegreeArt.com, the leading Art dealership for emerging artists
All competition entrants will receive free entry to the guest lectures and portfolio reviews chaired by industry experts taking place throughout The Signature Award Exhibition.
