Call for entries: Poochibald™ Art Prize 2022

Schoolhouse Gallery

Entries close, 18 September 2022

The Poochibald is an opportunity to show your appreciation and admiration for dogs. Whether they are big or small, scruffy or tidy, if they take you for a walk ’round the block rather than the other way around – we just just can’t seem to stop loving them.

Now in it’s 10th year, our annual Poochibald exhibition is a beloved community show not to be missed and coincides with our Dog’s Day Out event and Waggy Dog Tales – a kids animation workshop.

Anyone can submit a painting, drawing, print, or small sculpture and be in the running to win. Entries will be exhibited in Adult, Kids and Junior categories.

Be inspired by dogs of all kinds – celebrity dogs, childhood pals or that trusty lump keeping your toes warm on the couch right now. What says I love you more than an award winning portrait? (…maybe some liver treats…) Go on then! What are you waiting for!?
