Open Art Competition
Everything you need to know about this year's Open Art competition

The Oxfordshire Museum is very excited to announce the theme of this year’s Open Art Exhibition. 

Inspired by the collections kept by the Oxfordshire Museum Service this year’s theme will be ‘Representations of people’.

About the competition

Your artwork does not need to have been created for this competition, or even created recently, but it must fulfil the theme of ‘Representations of people’.

Whether it is a self-portrait or a more unusual representation of people we would love to see your work. 

The 50 best pieces will be selected for a stunning and eclectic exhibition at the Museum. From these 50, three prize winners will be selected.

Who can enter?

The competition is open to residents of Oxfordshire, and we welcome submissions from anyone aged 11 years and older. 

How can I enter?

To enter, you can request a form from oxfordshire.museum@oxfordshire.gov.uk

Once completed, please return the form with a digital image before 9am on 12th August via email. 

All entries will be considered, and 50 will be selected for display. If selected, we will require artworks to be delivered to the Museum no later Monday 9th September.
