Annual Art Competition

2018 2019 2021

The important dates for the 2022 competition are:

The shortlist day is Saturday 9th July.

The Mudeford Art Festival is the weekend of the 30th and 31st July.

Art has always played a big part of Stanpit and Mudeford. The hall itself is host to different art groups because it offers spacious rooms, a well maintained building and not to mention the beautiful view of Christchurch Harbour.

The local countryside and wildlife have always been an inspiration to artists of all medium.

The winning painting is proudly on display on the front of the building. It will be there for a whole year and we look forward to seeing a new winner every year.

The competition is open to local artists to submit a piece of their work and let the public vote for their favourite. The voting takes place each year at the Mudeford Arts Festival.
