The WAC Awards is an international visual arts competition.
The WAC Awards is an open competition for contemporary visual art that is gaining praise and respect in Britain and abroad. It was established five years ago by a group of artists and their friends in Wells, the beautiful cathedral city in the South-West of England. But an idea that came to life around kitchen and dining tables has already established a strong presence in the London art world and is drawing artists from places as diverse as Australia, Azerbaijan, India, Italy, Korea, Japan and the United States, as well as all over Britain.
Entries can be in any media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, photography, installation and video. There are no size restrictions.
All works are initially viewed anonymously and online by the panel of selectors. The chosen 100 works are exhibited in Wells in October where the final judging takes place.
The entry fee is £16 per work (£12 for current students).
