  • The Pixie Gallery Best in Show (Winner and Runner-Up)
  • The Mayor’s Award for Best Art by a Young Person (10 to 15 years)

 The current panel of judges (more to be confirmed) are Neil Pengelly (owner of The Pixie Gallery, Wellingborough), George Herbert (Representative of Buckingham Fine Arts), John Cable (Executive Director of Discover Wellingborough). Others are yet to be confirmed. 

“Our mission is to provide artists/photographers with exposure, appraisal and marketing of their art and photography locally.”
