Open Art

The New Forest Open Art competition and exhibition has been running since 2013. If you are an aspiring or accomplished artist who takes inspiration from the National Park, why not enter? Details are released each spring.

The competition is run by the New Forest National Park Authority in partnership with the New Forest Centre in Lyndhurst, and welcomes submissions from artists ahead of an exhibition at the Centre.

The competition and the exhibition of the artwork is sponsored by ExxonMobil at the Fawley Refinery, who have contributed prizes for the winners:

  • First prize – £500
  • Second prize – £300
  • Third prize – £100
  • People’s Prize – £100.

You can get more information about previous exhibitions, and view galleries of them by using the links on the right of this page.
