Bobi Robson, Communications Assistant at Parker Harris Partnership in the UK, asked me to post this Derwent Call to Artists–

Hello Marie,

I was wondering whether you might be interested in featuring the call for entries to the second Derwent Art Prize on your website?

The aim of the Prize, which in its inaugural year attracted over 3,500 entries from 67 countries worldwide, is to reward excellence through showcasing the very best international works created in pencil. It is an open submission opportunity offering a total prize money of £12,400 to British and international artists working in this versatile medium.
Entries will be judged by a distinguished panel of selectors: Kate Macfarlane, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Drawing Room; Professor Anita Taylor, artist, Co-Founder and Director of Jerwood Drawing Prize and Dean of Bath School of Art and Design and Josh Spero, Editor of Spears Magazine and Art Critic for Tatler UK.
I have attached the press release and an image from last year’s competition to this email.

Artists, enter your work on the Derwent Prize site here.
