This year’s judging panel consists of Royal Academician Hughie O͛Donoghue, artist Jane McAdam Freud, former NOA winner Kelvin Okafor, gallery director Cynthia Corbett, photographer Zelda Cheatle and filmmakers Elaine Pyke and Adam Saward. All artwork is judged strictly anonymously on talent, not connections and results in an exhibition of 100% of the open entries – not one ‘invited’ artist. By entering your work, you’ll be in with a chance of winning part of a £60,000 prize fund and being showcased in prestigious exhibitions in London and beyond. Submit your work today, or read on for more information.
“NOA is a wonderful platform for artists, a truly open competition, offering the opportunity not only for artists to exhibit their work in first class venues but the chance of being recognised and the possibility of being selected for one of the many prizes. The competition itself gives a real ͚snapshot of current practice in the UK and Ireland.” – Hughie O͛Donoghue RA – 2017 Chair Judge
