Each Spring we hold Banbury Artist of the Year art competition, or BAOTY for short. Who will be crowned BOATY this year?

Will you be banbury artist of the year 2021?

The competition is now live, and the deadline for emailing entries is 30th APRIL.

BAOTY is an online competition with four categories: Professional, Amateur, Young (18-25 yrs), Junior (12-17 yrs), and Primary (7-11 yrs), and is held on the Banbury Artist of the year Facebook page. Wiiners are decided by viewers voting for ('liking') their favourite piece of art in each category between 11th-25th May.

The winner with the most likes in each category will get a £20 gift voucher to spend in store.

Ts and Cs:

Entries are sent via our email address ( best quality image you have is best.

Please make sure that your email has 'BOATY' in the 'subject' line, and we need to know which category the piece is being entered into, and the name of the artist entering. (When entering the Primary and Junior categories, a first name and age is fine if you do not want your child's full name and age posted online.)
