2020 is the year things are being done differently and that includes the Arts Calendar Competition going online, as well as the judging of the People’s Choice Cover. 

This year we want you to select the Cover from the entire field of entries. Judges will then select the 12 other images for the calendar from the remaining artworks.

All 13 winners will be announced on Wednesday 4th November – so watch this space!

This year, the calendar has the theme "The World at Home" and artists were asked to reflect their life during 2020 in their artworks - whether created in response to Lockdown or reflecting the things that kept them buoyed throughout the time. 
The 13 winning artists will receive a cash prize, as well as featuring in the calendar, which will be released in December 2020.
