The Marshwood Arts Awards is the third in a series that began in 2008. Designed to highlight and promote the wealth of creativity in the South West, the Awards are divided into six categories

2015 Judges:

Sculpture & 3D – David Worthington

Fashion & Textiles – Harriet Wallace-Jones

Photography & Digital Media – Matilda Temperley

Furniture & Works in Wood – Rupert Senior

Artists are invited to submit work to any one (or more) of the categories and the relevant judge will select three artists from that category to exhibit in a high-profile mixed exhibition at the Bridport Arts Centre from 24th October – 21st November 2015.

Along with the three artists chosen from each category, there will also be an online public vote to choose another entrant to display their work in the exhibition.

Two collectors, Lord Bath of Longleat and Sarah Wild of Puncknowle Manor Estate, will each choose a work from the selected exhibition to receive a ‘Collector’s Award’.

The judges are also invited to exhibit a piece of their work alongside those whose work they have chosen.

Past judges have included John Hubbard, Kate Malone, John Makepeace, Caroline Broadhead, Tim McPherson, Emily Young and Roger Mayne.

The Marshwood Arts Awards exhibition, combining work from the judges with that of the selected entries, is a unique and much admired bi-annual exhibition. For more information and an opportunity to enter the 2015 Awards click here.
