Winter Comforts Art Competitions

The Picture Hooks program to support emerging illustrators hosts numerous competitions throughout the year. The “Winter Comforts” competitions were held between December 2020 and January 2021, with three individual competitions taking place during this period. The intention of each competition was to highlight the unexpected warmth of winter, focusing on three themes: baking, celebrations and family.

The results of this competition were posted on the Picture Hooks Instagram page, providing a public platform for the illustrators’ entries that included extensive coverage of each competitions’ runners-up as well as their main winners. The three main winners were also awarded £1,000 in support of their work.

Once galleries reopen, it is intended that the winners of each competition will also receive further exposure in one of Picture Hooks’ physical exhibition spaces.

And the talented runners up…
