Submit your artwork in any medium for a chance to win £300 of Jackson’s Vouchers.
Following the launch of Jackson’s art assist app for tablets, ArtGrid, we are having a competition celebrating the art of composition. ArtGrid provides artists with the ability to sketch perfect compositions from a photograph using an updated version of the traditional gridding method.

There is £500 in all in prize money, with the winner, as voted for by the public from the shortlist, receiving £300 in Jackson’s Art vouchers. Second and third place wins £125 and £75 respectively in vouchers to be used when & how the winners wish.
We are looking forward to seeing all your entries!
- The winner will receive £300 worth of Jackson’s Gift Vouchers.
- Second place will receive £125 of Jacksons’s Gift Vouchers.
