We have been very lucky in our supporters and in particular the generosity of the Shirley Foundation who have been providing cash prizes ever since we began. Special mention must also be made of PJR Creative Building’s who have contributed an inspired prize this year – Buildings of the Future, intended to stimulate the structural imagination of our artists. The portrait prize is also new this year and probably presents the biggest challenge of all.

All entrants are eligible for the main prize but artists should indicate on their entry form if they also intend their work to be entered for either of the prizes designated as ‘The Buildings of the Future’ or ‘The Portrait Prize’. From September artists should be able to download info & entry forms from our web-site and they can mail me atart@hfa.org.uk for Competition Entry Forms, Rules of the Competition, How to get there etc.

The Prize Giving and the Private View will be held in February 2019 at a date to be arranged. It’s also hoped to show films about autism throughout, or at least about autistic themes, autistic central characters, autistic dilemmas and so on which I’m sure some will welcome as light relief. I will also try to find informed speakers, at least for the Private View, and persuade dignitaries to open the proceedings.

Submissions must be in by Wednesday 31st October 2018. Please send or take your work to: The Exhibition Coordinator, 2 Park Avenue, Wood Green, London N22 7EX
