Parking Drawing Prize 2020 continues
This year’s Parkin Drawing Prize has remained open despite the COVID 19 lock down. There has been no human contact during the entry or selection of finalists phases. The competition will proceed in line with our original timeline. Selection of the winner and merit recipients will be able to proceed. This is irrespective of whether there are restrictions on the Academy Galleries being able to show an exhibition to the public. We regularly reviewed the situation based on Government and Ministry of Health advice. No scenario has affected the entries, the close off date, or the selection of finalists and winner. We encourage you to come and see the exhibition during August 2020.
Stay safe and well.
