ABOUT

The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition

BEAUTIFUL. VERSATILE. PRESTIGIOUS.

Open to all UK-based and international artists, the Sunday Times watercolour competition is a celebration of watercolour and water-based media in all forms. Whether it be abstract, figurative, contemporary or traditional, our entries range across different age groups, locations, inspirations and styles making it the UK’s most prestigious prize for contemporary watercolour painting.

The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition is the largest and most prestigious watercolour competition in the UK. Hugely popular with artists, gallery visitors and readers of The Sunday Times, the competition aims to celebrate and reward excellence and originality in the medium of watercolour.

Each year the panel of judges represent experts in their field. The judges will be looking for work that makes the most imaginative or otherwise impressive use of a water-based medium.

The Sunday Times Watercolour competition offers a generous range of prizes as well as the selected work featured in a national touring exhibition.
