Pieces will be judged by independent judges Jen Gash, winner of Sky Landscape Artist of the Year 2018, local pastel landscape artist Sarah Reid, and local landscape artist Haydn Morris.

Entrants will pay £10 each, with money going to the Unite the Unions' PPE fund, which currently stands at £815.

A second category for the Popular Prize, which will be decided by the most likes and shares, closes on July 19 at 9pm. There is also the chance for winners to place their work or art at Eden Valley Artistic Network Gallery in Penrith.
