Willington Art Festival & Mercia Marina Art Competition 2016

Our ever popular art competition in partnership with Willington Arts Festival is back for 2016 and we are accepting entries NOW!
The subject for competition entries is Water, Walks & Wildlife Along the Canal.

Take in the local area, walks to Willington and surrounding villages along the canal or visit Mercia Marina for inspiration for this year’s competition. We really want artists to get out in the local community and share what inspires them about the area encouraging to take walks and observe the canal side scenes and nature that is all around us. You can see the very latest competition entries in the Mercia Marina Office.

So we want to hear from local talent, accomplished artists, creatives and amateurs alike and as such there are 3 entry levels:


And 3 categories:
VISUAL ARTS – everything from drawing, painting and photography to sculpture, knitting and digital!
WORDS – Poems, typography, stories, creative writing.
MUSIC – A song, performance, recordings.

Come and view the wonderful entries in the “Willington Gallery” and vote for your favourite in each category over the festival weekend of 14th and 15th May.

An array of fantastic prizes up for grabs for category winners, the panels overall winner and a special prize for ‘recognising artistic ability’. All entries to have name and contact details supplied along with entry level and category.

All entries to Mercia Marina by April 28th
