This year’s Annual Exhibition will be held at the Ulster Museum, Belfast from 6th October 2017 to 7th January 2018 and will once again be sponsored generously by KPMG, the leading Accounting and Professional Advisory Firm. The exhibition will showcase original works across the disciplines of the visual arts by emerging and established artists.

These works will be reviewed by a selection panel and results circulated by 18th August 2017 (please note that short-listing does not guarantee final selection).

Please Note: Fees are £15 per artwork for the first two works and £10 for the third work entered. Students are offered a reduced rate of £10 for the first two works entered and £7.50 for the third work. Your student number must appear on your online entry form for this reduction to apply.
