Now in its 31st year, The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition is the largest and most prestigious prize for contemporary watercolour painting in the UK. Whether it be through abstract or figurative, contemporary or traditional, the competition aims to celebrate and redefine the beauty and diversity of watercolour and water-based media.
Eighty works have been selected from a total of 1,304 submissions by a panel of leading figures from the art world. The 2018 judging panel includes Ishbel Myerscough, artist; Paul Newland, artist; Jennifer Scott, Sackler Director at Dulwich Picture Gallery; James Stewart, Director of Zimmer Stewart Gallery, and Louis Wise, critic and writer for The Sunday Times. The Winners will be announced in the Culture section of The Sunday Times in August.
