Friends of Bushy and Home Parks is delighted to announce the launch of its first Park Art Competition.

Supported by Landmark Art Centre, the competition is open to any amateur artist from seven years old and upwards. The aim is to showcase the most “Inspiring Elements” of either Bushy or Home Park that will encourage others to explore and respect the beauty of the parks.

Entries are welcome for 2D pieces of artwork (all media is accepted except photography) no larger than A2. Artists are encouraged to get creative and capture their favourite scenic view or a detailed study of a plant or animal from either Bushy Park or Home Park.

To make things easy, entries will be submitted digitally (take a photo of the artwork on your phone) from 10th June until July 31st 2024.

Chosen shortlisted entries will be then exhibited at the Landmark Art Centre from September 12th – 15th 2024 for people to view and vote for your favourite to win the “People’s Choice Award”.
