National Open Art World Art Vote sponsored by





Explore, Discover, Discuss . . .  Launch 2 August 2017


The National Open Art World Art Vote sponsored by MS Amlin is a celebration honouring the democratic nature of the National Open Art Competition, which is judged anonymously on talent, not connections and results in an exhibition of 100% of the open entries - not one 'invited' artist.


We have created the World Art Vote so YOU can have your say and vote for your favourite work or artist. We welcome you to engage, browse and support the shortlisted artists by voting for one, or as many of your favourites as you wish*. The artwork with the most votes will be revealed in early September, win the £1,000 prize sponsored by MS Amlin and despite the judges decision in Round 2, be exhibited in the 21st National Open Art Exhibition at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, Southbank, London from 17 - 26 November 2017 (Free Admission) and in the Winners’ Exhibition at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester 6 - 17 December 2017.


Although we publish the artwork anonymously, we do also encourage the artists to take the opportunity to promote themselves!
