The biggest biennial art awards in the UK exploring spirituality through art is now open for submissions.
The Chaiya Art Awards is open to any artist, including art students and covers all mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles, mixed media, photography and video. We have also introduced an additional category for Community Groups, who can submit a collaborative piece. Entrants are invited to be authentic and daring as they respond to the theme.

Public Choice: £1,000
plus other prizes to be announced
A selection from the longlisted finalists will be invited to exhibit their submitted work as part of an exhibition at London’s prestigious South Bank gallery@oxo from 10-19 April 2020.
The first Chaiya Art Awards proved hugely popular, with over 450 entries and more than 2,700 exhibition visitors. New to Chaiya 2020 will be an ‘affordable art fair’ over two days of the exhibition. We will invite artists in the exhibition to be present, to discuss, promote and sell their work.
A respected panel will anonymously judge entries on Originality and Technical Excellence, Theme Interpretation and Emotional Impact .
