Calling all artists - Falmouth Art Gallery has launched its second art competition and is inviting emerging and established artists living or working in Cornwall to enter.

Imagine Falmouth is an open submission exhibition and art prize which was launched for the first time last year. Sponsored by Hine Downing Solicitors, a £750 prize will be awarded to the judge’s choice, £100 to the public choice and there is a prize of art materials and a chance to be featured in the exhibition for under 18s.

Submissions forms can be downloaded from the gallery website,, where full terms and conditions can also be found. The deadline for submissions is September 30.

Donna Williams, the gallery's access and interpretation manager, said: "After the success of our small submissions show last year, Imagine Falmouth is returning on a larger scale as a bi-annual open exhibition and art prize. We would like to invite emerging and established artists from across Cornwall to submit their very best work to be considered.

"Works will be selected for the exhibition by a panel of gallery and independent curators. The artist’s prize winner will be selected by an independent judging panel of artists and curators with an additional public vote prize at the end of the exhibition."

Five winners will be selected to be part of the main exhibition, which will be staged between November 11 and January 20, with additional prizes of art materials.
