Park Art Competition – Application Information

Get creative and capture your favourite aspect of our local historic royal parks.

The Landmark Arts Centre and the Friends of Bushy & Home Parks are delighted to announce the launch of their first Park Art Competition. The competition is open to any amateur artist from seven years old and upwards. The aim is to showcase the most “Inspiring Elements” of either Bushy or Home Park that will encourage others to explore and respect the beauty of the Parks.

What: An amateur art competition ending in an exhibition of shortlisted artworks. We welcome entries for 2D pieces of artwork (all media is welcomed except photography) and no larger than A2. We want artists to capture their favourite scenic view or a detailed study of a plant or animal from either Bushy Park or Home Park. We ask that the artwork has been created this year, either in the studio based on photographs, or during an en plein air visit to one of the parks.

Selected shortlisted entries will be invited to bring their artwork to the Landmark by the 23rd August for second stage of judging. They will be then exhibited at the Landmark Art Centre from September 13th – 15th 2024. The winners of each category will be announced at an evening reception on September 14th. The judges will be made up of selected representatives of the local arts and the park communities, plus management of Landmark and Friends of Bushy and Home Parks.
