SKETCH 2017 - Open Sketchbook Drawing Prize
 

In 2005, Meryl Ainslie, founder and director of Rabley Drawing Centre in Wiltshire launched the SKETCH Open Sketchbook Drawing Prize. SKETCH is the UK’s only art prize for artist’s sketchbooks with a dedicated touring sketchbook exhibition.

This year we are really delighted to be working with Parker Harris, one of the leading visual arts consultancies in the UK. Parker Harris specialise in the delivery of visual arts projects spanning all disciplines, which will help us to reach a much wider audience and applications will be made using their online portal. More information about Parker Harris on their website http://parkerharris.co.uk/.

The exhibition has grown and this year will be taking international submissions for the first time. A distinguished panel of judges will select 100 Sketchbooks for the prestigious prizes and touring exhibition.

SKETCH is not intended to be a survey of the sketchbook, but to generate an impetus for creative activity, viewing the sketchbook as a place for experimentation alongside the ordinary and the observed. This competition offers unique opportunities for the selected artists to develop their ideas with the help of the following prizes.

 
PRIZES
  • Prize Money (to be confirmed)
  • Rabley Print Editioning Prize
  • Black Swan Arts Solo Exhibition Prize
  • Plymouth College of Art Student Prize (Artists Access to Art Colleges award that gives a career boost with access to studios and facilities)
PROPOSED TOURING VENUES
  • Rabley Drawing Centre
  • Plymouth College of Art
  • Black Swan Arts, Frome
  • Peter Scott Gallery, Lancaster
