Dear the Highcliffe Art Fellowship,
I am writing to you from Storyvault Films, producers of the television series Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year. We are currently looking for artists to take part in the new series and I am hoping this will be of interest.
Every year we try and reach out to as many artists as possible and we’d be extremely grateful if you could let people know about the competition (and encourage them to enter) via your mailing lists and or social media channels.
The series will be filmed in spectacular locations around the UK over the course of this Summer. As we finally come out of the national lockdown we are hoping this will be the best yet for both our artists and viewers. For reassurance: all our filming is conducted under strict Covid-secure protocols regarding social distancing and health and safety.
Artists enter with a landscape artwork they have created within the last five years, via our website: https://www.skyartsartistoftheyear.tv/landscape. If selected to take part in the competition they will then be given the opportunity to paint a specially chosen, stunning landscape within the UK.
The prize on offer is a £10,000 commission for a major British institution plus £500 worth of art materials from Cass Art.
The deadline for applying to the competition is 30th April 2021.
In case you are unfamiliar with the programme, here is an episode of from last year’s competition: https://vimeo.com/showcase/8008553/video/500411938

Please forgive me if you have received this information regarding previous years’ competitions, and I hope this will be of interest this year!
