Jon Bird Prize Open Competition 2016 – The Winners

The Fishslab Gallery is proud to announce this year’s winners of the Jon Bird Prize.

1st – “Dungeness” by Frances Chapman


2nd – “IOU” by Patrick Wilkins


3rd – “Untitled” by Anna Shark

untitledThe standard of entries was very high and diverse, making the judges’ decisions really difficult.

However, choices were made, prizes presented and an enjoyable evening was had by all. It was great to meet the artists and their guests. The committee would like to thank all the artists who entered and congratulate the three winners.

Jon Bird Open Competition 2016

There was an excellent entry of 39 exhibits for the Open Competition this year. Unfortunately, space constraints at the gallery meant that not all could be exhibited. The judges (Wendy Robinson, Lin Fletcher, and Lawrence Fletcher) have therefore spent a substantial amount of time poring over the entries to select 25 items for the exhibition.

The Prize Presentation Evening will be held on Saturday, 22nd October at the Fishslab Gallery.

The exhibits (and artists) selected are:

Michael Szpakowski      Paintings named after songs by The Fall
