A cash prize of €500 will go to the overall winner, along with €200 for second place, €100 for third place, and phone credit worth €30 for each of the runners up.

Entries will be judged by an independent panel to create a shortlist of 10 winners whose art will feature in our exhibition. We will then put all 10 winners to a public vote for first, second and third prize.
