Submissions are now closed
The Letchworth Open is an annual exhibition that will be taking place at the Broadway Gallery in August 2023 celebrating our region’s creative community. Each year we aim to create Hertfordshire’s largest and most celebrated exhibition by bringing together some of the region’s most talented artists under one roof, whilst discovering new practitioners in our ever-expanding community.
For each edition the Broadway Gallery awards three exhibiting artists a £1000 bursary and an invitation to present their work at the Broadway Gallery in 2024. The bursaries are selected by the previous year’s recipients alongside the Broadway Gallery’s team. This year's selectors will be Nigel Grimmer, Emma Phillips and Tabitha Wilson. Additionally, three subject discipline prizes are awarded to artists that show an innovative approach to their medium or exceptional skill. This year we are delighted to introduce the People's Choice that will be decided by an anonymous public vote. All prizes and bursaries will be announced at the Gallery on Saturday 7 October. The awards are as follows:
- Painting & Drawing Prize
- Applied Arts Prize (Ceramic, Craft, Design and Textile)
- Photography, Print and Digital Media Prize
- People's Choice Prize
