Annual Competition and Exhibition, 2017

Every year, the Committee works tirelessly to organise what is, undoubtedly, the highlight of the SWAS calendar and this year is no exception. However, despite extensive enquiries over many months to secure a venue to stage this year’s Exhibition, no suitable venue with availability could be found.

At the A.G.M on 14th March 2017, a proposal was put forward that the Society hold an Online Exhibition instead, following all the normal procedures set out in the Constitution: i.e. three independent judges, all categories of work accepted and the presentation of all silverware prizes, including the Anthony Rapport Trophy for the Overall Winner.

This proposal, outlined below, was discussed and unanimously agreed at the Committee Meeting on Tuesday 2nd May:

All members can enter up to three works of any size, plus a miniature. Entry fee £2.00 per work.


Images will be displayed on the S W A S website. Therefore, it will not be necessary to submit framed work; bare canvasses are acceptable but work on paper must be mounted. All entries will be photographed, but you may take your own images before selection if you wish. We cannot guarantee the quality of your image if we have to photograph it through glass.

Application forms (available here) must be submitted by Friday 1st September 2017. Since the online exhibition will also be a sale, please also indicate the size - excluding mount and frame. Entrants should also read the exhibition rules here.

Judging will take place on Saturday 16th September at the Heath Citizens Hall, King Edward V Drive, Cardiff. Handing in of work 11.30 – 1 pm Judging 1.30 – 3 pm Collection of work 4 pm. No work will be rejected- judging will take place only to select the prize winners.

It is hoped the Exhibition will go on line in October.
