The overall winner will receive a £1,000 cash prize and will also have their piece displayed by the prestigious art gallery Panter & Hall, in London’s Pall Mall, while 50 shortlisted artworks will feature in an exhibition at London’s Mall Galleries, just a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace, in February 2016.
