The popular annual Painting Padiham event, which normally attracts lots of visitors to the town was due to take place on Saturday 16th May, 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 decided to run an online competition, which could be done from your home and was FREE to enter.
Artists had 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 was 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.
Now the competition is complete all the artist submission have been uploaded to https://www.facebook.com/padiham.org/ which are now open to public vote util 1pm on 31st May 2020. The prizes will go to the top three in each category with the most public votes.
