Artists can submit up to two works which must be handed in between 10am and 4.30pm on Friday 9 June or Saturday 10 June 2017, to the Museum and Art Gallery on Terrace Road in Buxton.

An independent panel of four judges will select the winners on Monday 12 June 2017.

Prizes will be announced at the preview evening and awards ceremony on Friday 23 June 2017.

The judges' selection including the winning pieces will go on display at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery from Saturday 24 June until Friday 1 September 2017 at 4pm.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
