Fronteer presents The Fronteer Open 2019, an open call to submit work to our annual open call exhibition at 35 Chapel Walk, Sheffield. The exhibition runs from 26th November to 6th December with the opportunity to win cash prizes of up to £200 and a year’s free artist profile with CuratorSpace.

UK artists from all backgrounds (including students) are invited to submit one piece of work on any theme they wish. The open call is free to enter, and artists are invited to submit one piece of work for consideration.

Work can be 2D or sculptural, and can be no larger than 70cm across any one side. Unfortunately, we cannot accept video or audio works. Work that is made of several parts (such as a triptych) is permitted but must measure no more than 70cm across any one side in its entirety.

If successful, your work will be subject to a £25 charge, which will apply only if your work is selected. Work must already be complete at the time of submission.

The deadline for submissions is Sunday 20th October and successful artists will be notified by email by Sunday 27th October.

The exhibition will be held at 35 Chapel Walk, Sheffield, between 26th November – 6th December (closed Sundays). There will be a private view on 26th November 6-8pm and an awards evening where the winning artists will be announced on 6th December 6.00-7.30pm.

Prizes and Sales Information

We are running 2 prizes during this exhibition; a Judges Choice Prize of £100 decided by the judging panel, and a People’s Choice Prize of £100 which is decided by public vote. Both artists will also win a year’s free artist profile on Curator Space.

Work can be offered for sale at the exhibition if you wish, and no commission will be charged for sales. Fronteer will put buyers in touch with artists to make arrangements for payment, although work must remain in the exhibition for its duration.

Further Information

If successful, you will be invited to send or deliver your work to Exchange Place Studios, Sheffield, UK, where Fronteer is based. The £25 can be paid via Paypal or bank transfer by 10th November. 

If successful, your work must reach us by post no later than 20th November or be dropped off in person on 21st or 22nd November at Exchange Place Studios between 11am-4pm.

After the exhibition, artists will be responsible for the return of their work. Artists can collect their own work from Chapel Walk on 7th December 1-5pm. You can also arrange for your work to returned by post at your own cost. Please allow up to 2 months (8th February 2019) following the exhibition for the return of work.

We do not have the facilities to store work, and any work which has not been collected, or had arrangements made for return postage after 2 months (8th February) will be disposed of.

All work must be complete at the time of submission. Any work which varies from the original piece submitted will be rejected. Work should fit the specifications outlined. If you wish to submit a print, it will be your responsibility to print it off before posting it to us.

Thank you and good luck!
