Art competition looking for artwork submissions in any medium from UK artists.

Pound has been established as an experiment to see if a micro-scale art funding project can exist from the change in our pockets. Pound is an art competition open to everyone and anyone. It is intended as a means of encouraging art projects and artistic experimentation. We want to see everything and anything – new ideas, concepts, uncompleted works, and gallery pieces!

The winning artist(s) is awarded the ‘pot’ of submission fees collected and is expected to invest this money in themselves, their practice, or a new piece of work. The amount the artist(s) received, who the independent judge was, the number of submissions, and how the winning artist used the ‘pot’ will be published. If successful the competition may be run as a monthly initiative in the future.
