About The Panel

Our judging panel of respected arts professionals reviews literally hundreds of entries online and shortlists the top three entries from each school. Following a public vote for the shortlisted entries, the entry with most votes from each school wins a place in the annual exhibition. Our guest judge then selects the overall winners and runners up at the exhibition and announces them at the prize giving ceremony.
