Competition for artists

Peak District Artisans’ annual search to find the most talented young artists is now underway, as they launch their 2013 Young Artist of the Year competition.

Following the success of last year’s competition – which attracted entries from throughout the Peak District and beyond – the group has increased the maximum age limit to 25.

Chris Farrow, PDA chair, said: “We’re looking for budding artists that can demonstrate a unique insight and creative vision.”

The deadline for entries is 6pm on April 2013 and the winner will get a £200 cash prize.
