The Details

Art competition details:

We are looking for your artwork, in your chosen season to reflect our theme: “When the Boat comes in –
British fishing lives through the year”

For inspiration consider the journey from the trawler toVirtual Craft Class Fishermen's Mission the plate. Think boats at sea, friendly fishermen, fish and chips on the beach, yellow wellies and the scenic fishing harbours around our beautiful coastline. Consider a season for your masterpiece and let us know if it fits best in Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter.
