Call for Submissions: Postcards from my Neighbourhood

13 Dec - 4 Feb

Draw, paint or photograph what you love or loathe about your neighbourhood!

Postcards From My Neighbourhood is a collaboration between Aspex and Southsea Lifestyle, encouraging people of all ages and abilities living within the PO postcode to visually respond to their local area.

All entries will be exhibited at Aspex, Portsmouth’s leading contemporary art gallery, located in Gunwharf Quays. Out of the submissions, a select few will feature within the February/March edition of Southsea Lifestyle.

Following the exhibition the postcards will be gifted to the Portsmouth City Archive.

Submission guidelines

  • Entries must be A6 in size (105mm x 148mm)
  • Entries must be 2D, but in any media
  • Entrants must live within the PO postcode district
  • Entries will not be returned following the exhibition’s completion, but will be gifted to the Portsmouth City Archive

For artwork to be exhibited at the celebration event, entries must be received by Saturday 3 February 2018. We will continue to accept and exhibit artworks after the submission deadline.
