Encompassing work from schools and colleges from across the county, each year there is a particular theme or medium, with a judging panel of artists selecting the shortlist of works to be exhibited from hundreds of entries. This year’s theme is Blue. Prize winners are announced at a preview of the show, while the visiting public are asked to vote for their favourite piece of work. The Visitor’s Vote Prize winner is announced on the last day of the show.

This popular event has been an annual fixture in The Engine Room at The Exchange during the Easter holidays since 2010.
