Are you harbouring some talent?


Depicting the changing elements of the sea, this atmospheric oil painting The Dawn Haul, was a 2016 entry by Jenny Morgan.

Last year the Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA) held their largest-ever annual exhibition with some 400 works, it was awash with talented artists. The exhibitions have previously attracted traditional, representational and intricate art forms; such as oil and watercolour paintings, in particular ships and sailboats. Overall the competition can be interpreted in many ways such as wildlife, beaches, piers and coastal shorelines. 

The RSMA open exhibition competition 2017 accepts entries in most artist mediums including sculpture. There are some great prize categories with award money to win, including but not limited to:
The R K Burt Paper Prize: High-quality artist paper for a work on paper.
The Sea Pictures Gallery Award: For work depicting the working side of the marine environment.
The Winsor & Newton Oil Prize: For a notable oil painting.

A range of selected works will be showcased the Mall Galleries London exhibition in October later this year. Make waves and submit your artwork online now. For entry information and pricing please visit the Mall Galleries website.  

Entry is now open until noon on Friday 30th June 2017. You must be over 18 to enter, a resident of the UK or EU. You can submit up to maximum 6 works of art.
