Black Swan Arts Young Open 2020
21 March – 25 April
Open for entries – November – 14 February

The Young Open is our annual competition for creatives between the ages of 8 and 19. We’re always impressed with the variety and vibrancy of work submitted. And it’s one of our best-attended exhibitions of the year.

The Young open gives younger artists the opportunity to experience entering an art competition and to have their work displayed in an art gallery. And we hope that entrants from the Young Open will go on to take part in the Art Open as they get older.

Black Swan Arts is proud to collaborate with local education providers. We welcome group submissions from schools and colleges and entries from individuals.

As with our Art Open, there are also prizes awarded.
