Please read this page carefully as it contains important information about the exhibition.

Ensure you print the copy of this page provided with your application form for future reference.


The submission form for the show is on the first page of the submission form document. You can either download the form, fill it in on your computer and email it back to us at, or print it out and fill it in by hand to submit by post to Enormous Art Ltd, 95 Brookhouse Hill, Sheffield, S10 3TE.

No matter how you have submitted, you must keep your own printed copy of your completed form to bring to selection and the show.

The last day for online submissions is the 12th of September.

If you are not able to complete your full form before the selection day, please let us know which day you will be attending in advance.

  Submitting a Form

You can submit up to six works, in any medium, including hand-made prints if they are a limited edition. We do not accept photography or giclée prints. You can submit digital art that uses creative digital skills and original ideas. This year’s competition theme is ‘Places of Worship’. If you are including a competition entry, this counts as one of your six works, and is not extra.

Frames used must be well-made and finished.  We do not accept clip frames or mirror plates. Works on paper must be framed behind glass. Unframed canvases must be tidily finished around the edges. Hung works should have a hanging cord, attached with D-Rings, that cannot be seen when the picture is hung (please see reference images to the right for details).

You must label each exhibition on the back using the labels provided with the submission form. Artwork must be framed and labelled before selection.

We will reject works that are not properly presented or finished.

The minimum acceptable price for work is £40. We do not accept ‘not for sale’ works. Do not use excessively high pricing in order to discourage a sale. Our commission charge is 30% (25% + VAT) of the sale price.

You are responsible for arranging your own insurance for your artwork.

  Artwork Specifications

Online Submission

If you are submitting online, you MUST email or send via WeTransfer high resolution copies of your artwork, along with your form, to for selection. Please ensure they are clearly labelled so we know which piece is which. These images must be finished works inclusive of the frame (if applicable). If your application is successful you will be contacted to pay your hanging fees of £6 per selected picture. These must be paid before the show or your work will not be exhibited. We accept card or cheque for payments.

Attending a Selection Day

The selection days for this year’s show are on Sunday the 15th and Sunday the 22nd of September. These will be held at Hallam Community Hall, Hallam Grange Cres, Sheffield S10 4BD. Please bring all pictures, along with your form, to the hall between 9.30am – 12.00pm. Waiting time could be up to one hour while your pictures are being selected, before they are returned to you with your submission form.

If your application is successful you will be required to pay your hanging fees of £6 per selected picture at the selection day.

  Before the Show

The show is the 22nd - 24th of November at the Millennium Galleries. All of the artwork that is selected will be online prior to the show, to encourage sales and visitors.

You must bring selected pictures along with your form to the Surrey Street Entrance of the Millennium Gallery, S1 2LH, on Thursday the 21st of November between 6pm and 8pm.

If you attended a selection day your pictures will have already been numbered. Once these have been checked you may drop off your work and leave.

If you submitted online your pictures will not have already been numbered, so you must go to the online submissions desk for this to be completed.

Friday the 22nd is hanging day, and we will need as many volunteers as possible. Please contact Anne Liddell via email at if you are available. Friday the 22nd is also the preview and official opening of the show from 7.30pm – 10pm; we encourage all artists to attend. Tickets are £10 per person, sorry no children are allowed at this event.


We will also need volunteers throughout the duration of the show. If you are interested, please contact Anne Liddell via email at

There is a program of demonstrations that runs during the show; these will be held in the Art Room downstairs in the Millennium Gallery. If you would like to host one of these sessions, please contact Richard Towers via email at, or telephone at 07768628428.

Competition winners will be announced on Sunday the 24th at 2pm, and prize giving will be held at this time.

  During the Show

You must collect your unsold pictures from the Millennium Gallery on Sunday the 24th of November between 5.30pm and 6.30pm, or Monday the 25th of November between 10am and 4pm.

You cannot collect your pictures when the show closes at 4pm as this is when buyers collect the sold pictures. Artists who have sold all their works will be contacted before the end of the show to inform them they do not need to attend pick-up.

If you sell a picture, a commission of 30% of the sale price will be deducted. We will make payments to you after the show, of the sale price minus our commission of 30%.  If you provide your bank details we will pay this directly in to your account, otherwise you will be sent a cheque.
