UPDATE on 'A World of Coloured Pencil' Mixed Media Competition

7th 'A World of Coloured Pencil' Mixed Media Competition 2009
31st May - 27th June 2009
Venue: The Cumberland Pencil Museum, Keswick, CA12 5NG

This year the UKCPS has received an extremely good response to the call for entries for the 7th 'A World of Coloured Pencil' Mixed Media Competition 2009 and entry was closed on 15th April.

Unfortunately there is limited space available for the exhibition at the Pencil Museum and consequently the number of pieces which can be accepted for exhibition always has to be limited.

In past years, entries have sometimes been slow to arrive. This year the number of entries was much higher than normal and unfortunately too many were received for the available hanging space.

It is always disappointing to have to turn entries away. However the acceptance of entries was assessed in accordance with the stated rules and those posted prior to the earliest application were eliminated. Those posted on and after the 30 March were accepted by postmark date and only the first 24 entries were accepted.

Letters of acceptance and rejection were sent on 21st April to all the people who sent entries. Acceptance letters detail requirements for hanging and delivery.

UKCPS very much appreciates the effort and interest of all those applying. Organisers noted that it was especially encouraging to receive entries to this exhibition from seven people who are "newcomers" to coloured pencil.
