We are delighted to announce our Landscape Artist Competition, in conjunction with Horsham Districts Year of Culture 2019, Seofon Business Services Ltd will be hosting an annual art contest with the finalists displayed in The Leonardslee Estate at the captivating Leonardslee Lakes & Gardens. This competition is an experience that is not to be missed, so why not you give it a go and paint, sketch or illustrate your own breath-taking landscape, (must be of a Landscape in the Horsham District) in any medium of your choice except photography.
Chris Cooper, who is one of the directors here at Seofon, and is also the chairman of the Billingshurst & Horsham Chamber of Commerce thought it would be a great idea to set up an annual artist competition for the residents of Horsham District, each year there will be a different theme. This year the theme is landscapes of the Horsham District, this could be Horsham itself, Southwater, Slinfold, Pulborough or any other village and view in the Horsham District. A brilliant idea to bring the community together and for amateur artists to get their art seen by members of the public.
Make a day of it and head out in to the countryside and snap pictures of the exquisite scenery that surrounds us and try your best to recreate it in the most creative way possible.
Photographs of your art can be submitted anytime between September 2018 and 31st July 2019, with a Permission Form (If under 16 years old.)
All entries will be showcased on our Facebook page so make sure the photograph of your art is of a good quality.
