Preselection Results 2018

Thank you for submitting your work to the Horse in Art Annual Open Exhibition. This page will list below ONLY those works that have passed preselection. If any or all of of your work does not appear then unfortunately on this occasion the work has not been selected.
However, please remember that the preselection is currently intended as a guide only to the likelihood of your work being accepted at Handing in Day.

Though it is fairly reliable, please be aware that works that are preselected are not automatically accepted for the exhibition, but this process enables artists to submit works for consideration without transport and framing costs.

**It is still possible for work to be rejected at the final panel.**

Make sure you have booked your courier! – Unless bringing the work yourself.

Check the exhibition guidance notes and read the notes below to increase the chances of your work making it through the final selection.

NEW FOR 2018

We have had  several requests for feedback on rejected work, so this year we are trialing a brief feedback form for artists which will give suggested points to look at for future development of your work. We really hope you will take it in the spirit in which it is intended and hopefully gain some constructive pointers for future submissions.

There can be many reasons why a piece is accepted for one exhibition and not another, depending on the criteria of the  judging panel and the balance overall of the selected works. Do not be disheartened if your work has not been selected this time. It happens to us all. Also remember that they are only the opinion of our panel regarding the work submitted. 
If you feel that you would like to receive feedback please email the administrator. and please allow up to 10 days for your reply.
