Let your creativity flow and imagine what your world will look like in 50, 100 or 1000 years’ time. What will our cities, towns and houses look like? How will people dress? Will the future be similar to the present day, or very different? Our judges are looking for imagination, originality and innovative creations.

Farnham Maltings is delighted to present the second annual Young Artist Award. For 2017, we would like to invite 6-18 year olds to submit artwork to theme Visions of the Future. We are celebrating the creative talent of young people, giving them an opportunity to exhibit work in a professional space. We want to inspire and give confidence to young people wanting to pursue a career in art and design, highlighting the importance of creativity and imagination.

Charlie Betts (artist and educator), Outi Remes (Director of New Ashgate Gallery) and Paul Smith (London-based painter), will be selecting five winners from each Media Category for the Finalists’ exhibition at the Riverside Café Gallery. Finalists will have their work framed and will be invited to an Awards Night at the opening of the Maltings’ annual Youth Arts Festival Spark, Friday 24 March 2017. Winners will be presented with a certificate and three overall winners will be announced.

Following the success of the inaugural Young Artist Award 2016, which explored the theme of portraiture, we are hoping for even more young artists to get involved. The Maltings Young Artist Award Visions of the Future is proudly supported by creative firm Stride Treglown, who specialise in town planning, architecture, urban and interior design.

Please deliver your artwork with completed Application Form and entry fee to the Visions of the Future, Box Office, Farnham Maltings, Bridge Square, Farnham, Surrey by 10 February 2017. More information and Application Form can be found on our website:
