The popular annual Painting Padiham event, which normally attracts lots of visitors to the town was due to take place this Saturday, has been postponed.  We are still hoping to run the event later in the year when some restrictions are lifted and we can do so safely.

In the meantime the organisers have decided to run an online competition, which can be done from your home and is FREE to enter.

You have from now until midnight on Saturday 23rd May to submit a piece of artwork.  All artwork must be within a mile radius of Padiham Town Hall (including Gawthorpe Hall and Grounds) or alternatively you could do a portrait of a person from Padiham.

The competition is open to all ages and will be judged by public vote via the Painting Padiham facebook Page. Prizes will be given to the top 3 in each category.

Adults age 16 or over of all abilities are welcome to enter.  1st prize is a one night stay for two at the beautiful boutique hotel The Lawrence in Padiham.

The children’s competition will be split into 3 categories: Under 7s, ages 8-11 and ages 12-15. Please include the child’s age on the submission, then they can be entered into the correct category.

You can submit your artwork via the Painting Padiham facebook page or email pichouse04@gmail.com or ksmith@burnley.gov.uk before midnight on Saturday 23rd May.

If you would like to see pictures of Padiham, please see below or visit the Painting Padiham facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/padiham.org/

We look forward to seeing your submitted artwork.
