One of the east of Eng­land’s top art prizes, the Holt Fes­ti­val – Sir John Hurt Art Prize, is now open for en­tries. The win­ner will win a cash prize of £1,750 and their en­try will also be ex­hib­ited at Nor­wich’s Sains­bury Cen­tre for Vis­ual Arts.

The lead­ing north Nor­folk Fes­ti­val has also an­nounced a new prize specif­i­cally aimed at younger artists; the Sworders Art Prize, which is open to artists aged be­tween 16 and 23.

It has a prize of £750 for the win­ner, who will also be of­fered a com­mis­sion­free exhibition by Holt’s new con­tem­po­rary art space The Gallery in Lees Yard.

Both prizes are open to artists ev­ery­where and in previous years there have been en­tries from across the re­gion and be­yond. All types of vis­ual art are wel­come and the clos­ing date for en­tries to both com­pe­ti­tions is midnight Sun­day, June 16.

The win­ners will be an­nounced at a pri­vate view on the evening of Sun­day, July 21.
