tribe announces £100 prize money for a young Plymouth artist – and some help to get into The Zone

Tribe: looking for a young Plymouth artist

Plymouth’s online international creative arts magazine tribe, and the city’s youth service The Zone have joined force.

tribe  will be running a competition – inviting young artists to submit ideas for filling a window space at The Zone’s Union Street base.

Mark Doyle, editor in chief at tribe told ArtsCulture: “We are looking for a young artist in Plymouth to create a unique visual display in the window at The Zone. It is a brilliant site –and the exposure will be an amazing opportunity for a young artist.

“tribe will judge the entries received. The young person providing the winning idea will win £100 and the tribe team – working with The Zone will help to realise the vision with the young person.”

Chief executive of The Zone Mike Jarman said: “This is a rare opportunity for a young artist to have their work seen by a wide range of people, and their talent recognised internationally.

“We are looking for images that can reflect the real issues young people face today living in Plymouth, hopefully in a format that can both challenge perceptions as well as encourage debate.

“The Zone prides itself on the work that it does in helping young people to reach their full potential, this competition provides another example of us providing this opportunity, the chance for young artists to have their skills recognised.”

Along with the winning entry, there will also be three runners-up.

The competition is open to 13-16 year olds and the closing date is September 1. For more details about the competition, pop over to the tribe site.
