Young Botanical Artist Competition

Royal Botanic Gardens Kew (UK)
Young Botanical Artist Competition 2022

Sponsored by Dr Shirley Sherwood in collaboration with the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, the Young Botanical Artist Competition invites budding botanical artists to submit 2D botanical artworks depicting trees, leaves and anything that exists in between. This could be a leaf bud, a branch, a decaying leaf or a moss-coated trunk – any part, big or small, that inspires you.

There are 2 age-based categories (16-18 and 19-25) and 10 artists from each category, based on their digital image submission, will be shortlisted.

Submissions will be judged by a panel of esteemed judges, from revered contemporary botanical artists to Kew’s gallery curators and program leaders. The judges will be looking for botanical artworks that represent their subject creatively, but with scientific accuracy.

prizes: There are two categories: 16-18 and 19-25. Overall winner (1 per category): 750 GBP. Highly commended (2 per category): 250 GBP. Also, all artworks shortlisted for the Young Botanical Artist Competition will be exhibited from April 2023 at The Shirley Sherwood Gallery, UK.

Open worldwide to young artists aged 16-25.

fee: There is no entry fee.

deadline:  30 November 2022
