2nd Chaiya Art Awards, Top Prize £10,000

The UK's leading art awards exploring spirituality through the visual arts.

Closing date: 18 Oct 2019

The Chaiya Art Awards is open to any artist and covers all mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, mixed media, photography and video with a top prize of £10,000.

Entrants are invited to be authentic and daring as they respond to the theme 'GOD is ...' This competition is open to people of all faiths, to those who have no belief in God, and to everyone in between. It’s about continuing an age old conversation in a modern setting through contemporary eyes.

There is also a new category for Community Groups, who can submit a collaborative piece.

The winners exhibition will take place at London’s prestigious South Bank gallery@oxo from 10 to 19 April 2020.

The first Chaiya Art Awards proved hugely popular, with over 450 entries and more than 2,700 exhibition visitors. A respected panel will anonymously judge entries on Originality and Technical excellence, Theme Interpretation and Emotional Impact.
