How will you respond to the theme

GOD is ...

The judges will be looking for originality and technical excellence.   We ask you to be authentic and daring.

The biennial Chaiya Art Awards has its roots in Christianity but this competition is open to people of all faiths, to those who have no belief in God, and to everyone in between. It’s about continuing an age old conversation in a modern setting with contemporary eyes. It’s about asking big questions and looking for inspiration from the wealth of the UK’s creatives.  We encourage you to mine the depths of your imagination and creatively fly as you respond to the new theme.

As Henri Matisse said “Creativity takes courage”.

Be inspired. We are excited to see your work.
