Swire Ridgeway Arts Prize 2024

 Theme for the 2024 competition

The show in 2023 was a success in so many ways and we will be running the Swire Arts Prize again in 2024 with a new theme of

 ‘Signs and Symbols along the Ridgeway’

YOU CAN INTERPRET THIS THEME as your imagination takes you.

ASPECTS OF THE NATURAL WORLD may be the source of inspiration, such as signs of the seasons e.g. the first frosts of winter, spring buds, summer swallows, lambs and calves, autumn bronzes or wonderful birdsong and summer heat haze.

PEOPLE AND MAN-MADE THINGS could feature e.g. the signs of travellers along the route or indeed the waymarks and finger posts that assist them.

THE RIDGEWAY HAS AN ANCIENT HISTORY OF ITS OWN, of course. Signs and symbols of peoples’ long past have left indelible inspiration on and near the Ridgeway National Trail.

WE HOPE that you will be inspired to produce more amazing works of art to help The Friends of the Ridgeway celebrate our national trail in art again in 2024.
