Entrants are requested to submit work in the form of high quality Jpeg images accompanied by a short CV and a clear statement concerning the work. Because of the large number of entries most of the works will be selected from these images, therefore it is important to submit clear images of your work and to show items that are available for the exhibition.
Entrants who work through the medium of the moving image or performance are invited to present their work on DVD. After viewing the entries, the selectors may request further material. Also a small number of those short-listed for the exhibition may be visited by the selectors.
The selected works will be displayed in Y Lle Celf for the duration of the Eisteddfod. Where the work necessitates, it may happen other than in the building itself.
Please contact the Visual Arts Officer if the requirements do not appear to be relevant to your art practice.
The Eisteddfod tradition of honouring excellence will be maintained in the following sections:
THE GOLD MEDAL FOR FINE ART
Prize: The Gold Medal for Fine Art (replica) (Elin Jones) and £5,000 (James Pantyfedwen Foundation) to be awarded at the discretion of the selectors.
THE GOLD MEDAL FOR CRAFT AND DESIGN
Prize: The Gold Medal for Craft and Design (replica) (Ceredigion Plaid Cymru Councillors Group) and £5,000 (Llanbadarn Fawr Community Council) to be awarded at the discretion of the selectors.
