This year’s Hampstead Summer Festival will again feature the “Picture the Heath” painting competition.

It offers prize money of up to £1,000, along with free courses at the prestigious Hampstead School of Art.

Artists are encouraged to submit work for display and sale at Art Fair Day (June 23), to be judged by Pinter Rapido organiser Roger Beckett, BBC arts presenter Estelle Lovett, and the school’s principal Isabel H Langtry.

Isabel praised the festival and its natural surroundings, saying: “It’s not difficult to be inspired by the Heath and the beautiful village and it’s thanks to Art Fair Day that we have been able to develop Picture the Heath into the wonderful event it is today, creating opportunities for hundreds of artists, art lovers and buyers.”

Entries are welcomed from artists of all ages, disciplines, and levels of experience. Visit eventbrite.co.uk/e/picture-the-heath-2018-tickets-45237674101. It starts at 9.30am.
