Strathmore and Jackson’s Art Supplies have teamed up to present a competition to artists in all media. It is entitled ‘Wonders of Winter’ and you have to purchase a competition pack from Jackson’s Art Supplies for a measly £6.00. For this you get 30 sheets of A4 Strathmore paper and you must do your entry on one of these sheets.
The competition pack consists of:
4 sheets of 400 Bristol Smooth, 4 sheets of Bristol Vellum, 5 sheets of Drawing Medium, 4 sheets of Charcoal in Storm Grey, 4 sheets of Charcoal in Velvet Grey, 4 sheets of Charcoal in Blue Grey, and 5 sheets of Imperial Watercolour, Cold Press.
The rules are simple: use Strathmore paper, a depiction of winter, enter online by the 9th March 2014. There will be a shortlist of 100 pieces that will then go to a public vote on the 11th March 2014. Prizes: 1st prize wins £500 of art materials (Strathmore and Jackson’s vouchers), 2nd prize £300 of the same and 3rd place is £200 of the same. Good luck – I’ll be getting my winter on soon I hope!
