emporium, in association with Lichfield Festival invites emerging and established artists countrywide to participate in their annual visual arts competition.

Under the exhibition title Dreams and Extremes artists are invited to creatively interpret this year's competition theme which focuses on America; a land of hopes and dreams, and extremes of terrain and temperature, of colour, creed, culture and colonisation.

This very topical subject, as well as a wide historical or geographical brief, invites interpretation and artistic expression with paintings, drawings, printmaking, sculpture, textiles, mixed media, film or photography.

First Prize - £500 cash sponsored by Lichfield BID & A solo exhibition at emporium

The People’s Choice - £200 cash sponsored by Keelys LLP Solicitors - This new prize will be awarded to the artist who receives the most votes from exhibition visitors.
