The Aesthetica creative works competition is a really great opportunity for established and aspiring artists to showcase their work to a wider, international audience and last year's Artwork winner, Marcus Jansen, has recently been selected by Absolut Vodka to be part of their Absolut Blank campaign - one of only 18 international artists represented!

  • Winners and finalists are published in the Aesthetica Creative Works Annual.
  • One winner from each of the competition's three categories (Artwork, Poetry and Short Fiction) will receive £500 prize money.
  • Entry to the Creative Works Competition is £10 and this allows the submission of 2 images, 2 poems or 2 short stories. 
  • The deadline for submissions is the 31st August 2011.
