The ANGUSalive Meffan Winter Show open art competition invites professional and non-professional artists resident in Scotland to showcase their work and have their work considered for inclusion in Angus' public collection. This year's exhibition, selected from over 170 submissions, includes painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, jewellery, and photography. All artworks exhibited are available for sale.

Winners of the two purchase prizes have their work included in the Angus Council art collection, managed and cared for by the charity ANGUSalive. This year, our judging panel was joined by Lucy Byatt from Hospitalfield and Stephen Palmer from Creative Scotland. The Colin Dakers Memorial Purchase Prize winner is selected by his family.

To encourage young craftspeople in this Year of Young People, this year ANGUSalive also presented winners with specially commissioned tulip-wood quaichs handmade by Angus Young Engineers, based at Forfar Academy.

Additionally there is a public vote to select the winning work by an amateur artist. Voting for the People's Choice Award will close at 5pm on the 7 December and the winner of the £200 prize money will be announced on Friday 14 December on our Facebook page.
