The Hoffmann Foundation for Autism Prize Competition and Exhibition for 2018/19 will take place at Bruce Castle Museum and Gallery, Lordship Lane, London N17 8NU, from Wednesday 14th November 2018 until Thursday 28th February 2019.

 

The Hoffmann Foundation for Autism has been providing an art service for adults with asc since 1991 and since 1994 there have been 45 one person and mixed exhibitions in London and elsewhere; we have provided a painting and drawing prize competition since 2009.

 

All entrants are eligible for the main prize but artists should indicate on their entry form if they also intend their work to be entered for either of the prizes designated as ‘The Buildings of the Future’ or ‘The Portrait Prize’.

  • The PJR Creative Building Prize: First Prize £250.00, Second Prize £150.00, Third Prize £100.00 Provided by PJR Creative Building

  • The Lillie Portrait Prize: £200.00, Anonymous Donor

 

From September artists should be able to download info & entry forms from our website and they can mail me at art@hfa.org.uk for Competition Entry Forms, Rules of the Competition, How to get there etc.

 

The Prize Giving and the Private View will be held in February 2019 at a date to be arranged. It’s also hoped to show films about autism throughout, or at least about autistic themes, autistic central characters, autistic dilemmas and so on which I’m sure some will welcome as light relief. I will also try to find informed speakers, at least for the Private View, and persuade dignitaries to open the proceedings.

 

Submissions must be in by Wednesday 31st October 2018. Please send or take your work to: The Exhibition Coordinator, 2 Park Avenue, Wood Green, London N22 7EX

 

Phone 020 8881 8638 or E-mail: art@hfa.org.uk for an application form and Info Pack or general enquiries. You can also visit the Day Service between 15.00-16.00 weekdays to pick up forms etc.
