Time is running out for adults to enter the Buxton Spa Prize art competition which closes on Sunday.

The competition has two categories for adults aged 18 and over - the Buxton Spa Prize, which is based on art inspired by a location in the town and will earn the winner £5,000 and the Harold Riley Sketchbook Prize, worth £2,000 for the winner, which gives entrants the opportunity to show their work processes and can be on any subject.

Artists using any 2D medium, except photography, are invited to enter the Buxton Spa Prize, visit the town and register. Up to 24 locations are available and picked by ballot, then each artist bases their artwork on their individual response to the location venue.

There are also two categories for young artists - the Young Artist Prize for 12-17-year-olds and the Children’s Prize.
