artsdepot 2015 Submission Overview
artsdepot is passionate about art and artists and our annual artsdepot open exhibition is a celebration of creativity. Submissions are encouraged from both emerging and established artists. The exhibition is a chance for artists to have their work prominently displayed and promoted in artsdepot, and for our audiences to experience and buy a diverse and vibrant range of visual art.
Thanks to the generous support of the Milly Apthorp Charitable Trust Continuation Fund we are pleased to offer the Milly Apthorp Prize. A first prize of £750 and second prize of £250 will be awarded to the two most distinguished works by an artist currently living, studying or working in the London Borough of Barnet.
An additional prize will be awarded to Young Artists aged 13-19 years old.
Prizes are awarded at the exhibition opening.
Submission Process: Submissions are invited from artists of all visual art disciplines and abilities who are aged 13 years and over. You can submit up to 3 works for consideration. The final selection is made by a panel of arts professionals, based on the artwork’s quality and its suitability in relation to all the works shortlisted for the exhibition.
The exhibition will be shown to the public at artsdepot from Tuesday 31 March – Friday 10 April 2015.
At least a third of the work selected for display will be from applicants living, studying or working in the London Borough of Barnet. These artists will be automatically entered into the Milly Apthorp Prize.
Work submitted should have been made within the last three years.
You can submit up to three works. There is a submission fee of £10 per work for adults. The fee for Young Artists is £3 per work. Applications submitted without the fee will not be accepted. The submission fee is non-refundable.
Shortlisting: the Panel’s decision is final. Please refer to Terms & Conditions.

You will be informed of the status of your entry by Wednesday 19 March 2015. Due to the large volume of applications received, we unfortunately cannot offer individual feedback to unsuccessful submissions.
