Open Exhibitions

There are many opportunities to take part in public exhibitions through the 'Open' process.  Most galleries charge a fee when you submit your work (there are a few exceptions). If selected, your work is exhibited and promoted.  There are often prizes awarded or other opportunities. These tend to take place a very specific times so follow the link to the site to check when their submission date is.

Web Link Nottingham Castle Open

For more than 100 years Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery, the first municipal Museum & Art Gallery outside of London, has played host to an ‘open-style’ exhibition, an event which celebrates the enormous creative talent within the region. The Nottingham Castle Open is one of the busiest and most exciting events in the Castle’s Annual calendar.

In 2013 they removed the application fee and went online.  They also removed the need to include a 'statement' in your application so selection is entirely by image now.
