The Prize has two aims:
- to encourage the very best creative representational painting and
- to promote the skill of draughtsmanship
It's a well regarded competition and one which looks good on a CV!
The deadline for entry is 5pm (17:00) on Wednesday 16th December 2015
Given that entry is now digital I'd very much encourage artists to at least submit a digital entry. the expenses of framing and getting the work to London are only incurred if your work gets through the initial judging.
It's also a particularly good competition for younger artists given there are two prizes which are limited to younger artists.

What's happened in the past?
It's worth looking at those selected and exhibited in previous years to make an assessment of the sort of art which has a good 'fit' with this competition.
You can see the artwork shortlisted for the Lynn Painter Stainers Prize on the website on the Past Winners page which includes images for all the competitions 2005-2015. This is the link to the 2015 Exhibition and prizewinners
