Fronteer - an inititive founded by Sheffield based artists Michael Borkowsky and Sharon Mossbeck - present The Fronteer Open 2018, an open call to submit work for an exhibition and arts prize at 35 Chapel Walk, Sheffield from November 19th – December 2nd 2018. With the opportunity to win cash prizes of up to £200.
Artists are invited to submit one piece of work on any theme they wish, which will then be separated into the following categories; Amateur, Professional and Student. Artists will be responsible for choosing which category they feel they belong to, with a prize of £100 for the winning artist in each category. There will also be a People’s Choice audience vote, with the work that receives the most votes being awarded a prize.
The open call is free at the point of entry, though if successful, your work will be subject to a £15 charge. Meaning that the £15 will apply only if your work is selected.
Work can be 2D or sculptural, and can be no larger than 75cm across any one side. Unfortunately, we cannot accept video or audio works.
Work can be offered for sale at the exhibition if you wish, and no commission will be charged for sales. 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.
The deadline for submissions is 10pm on Friday 12th October and successful artists will be notified by email on Friday 19th October.
£400 worth of prizes will be given away to artists during the exhibition, and will be broken down as follows:
- £100 for Best Amateur
- £100 for Best Student
- £100 for Best Professional
- £100 People’s Choice Award
This means there is a maximum prize amount of £200 available if an artist wins both their category, and the People’s Choice Award. Prizes for Best Amateur, Best Student and Best Professional works will be decided by a judging panel consisting of Fronteer founders Michael Borkowsky and Sharon Mossbeck, along with a representative from 35 Chapel Walk. The People’s Choice Award will be voted for by the audience over the course of the exhibition, up until the open evening.
