Art competition calls for creative doorstep views

Get creative and help create our 2021 calendar with a difference. We design and print a calendar each year producing 15,000 copies and for 2021 we want it to be our most colourful and vibrant one yet!

We want to find 12 works of art inspired by life on our doorsteps.

Last year we held our first art competition and it was won by David Hughes from Telford whose stunning oil painting of Coalport, now adorns the front cover of our current calendar. Here's Dave to tell you more:

This year’s theme is life on our doorsteps. As we have to spend more time at home think about what you can see around you. It may be a view from a window, something you notice on a daily walk, a snap shot of family life or a still life of objects you love.

We’re welcoming artworks created from all media from painting to printmaking and textiles to sculpture.

12 winning entries will then be published in the 2021 calendar with the overall winner taking pride of place on the front cover. The winning entries will also be exhibited later in the year.

Three top tips to get you started:

  1. We want to create a vibrant calendar so think about using bright colours.
  2. Our calendar is landscape format so make sure that your artwork is a horizontal/letterbox format.
  3. If you enter a photograph it must be a high quality image able to be printed A4 size (the file size will be at least 2MB).
