Mural Competition 2021

June 02nd 2021


Calling all artists, professional or amateur

Once again, Callington Town Council is holding an art competition to create three murals to be installed on the wall above Lloyds Pharmacy in New Road, opposite Bradleys Estate Agents.  The initial creations will be completed on an A4 sheet of paper with the winning entries to be created by the winning artists, on three marine plywood boards (1701.8mm x 1219.2mm x 12mm).  The mural boards will stay up for one year so they must be made weather-proof.  £60, for each board, will be given to the winning artists to pay for materials

This competition will be run annually.

Entries close on 25th August 2021.  Entries will be judged by a panel chaired by the Mayor Portreeve.  The winning murals must be completed and ready to erect on the wall by  29th September in time for Honey Fair on 6th October 2021.

A ‘Callington/COVID’ theme is preferred but not vital!

If you would like to enter the competition, please design your entry on an A4 portrait sheet of paper (same ratio as the boards) with your name and contact details on the reverse and submit to Callington Town Council, Town Hall, New Road, Callington PL17 7BD addressed to Councillor        Mike Tagg.  Alternatively, you can email your entry to
