Local Artists Encouraged To Stamp Out Illegal Graffiti

Local artists in Sussex are being given the chance to win £1000 prize money by designing a series of murals that will revitalise the entrance to Meeting House Lane in Brighton's city centre.
Graffiti Or Art? Brighton's Dilemma

The recently formed Brighton BID (Business Improvement District) is working with the Business Forum to rescue the vandalised site and protect the area - a graffiti hot spot - from further damage.

Artists are invited to submit ten miniature colour sketches with a brief written outline of their idea.

Brighton-based company RareKind, a collective of innovative professional artists specialising in the urban art scene, will be on-hand to manage the artists and support them in executing the work.

The project is sponsored by Southern Water who will provide the prize money to the winning artist or artists.

The closing date for the competition is Friday 15 June. Artists can enter individually or as a team and must be aged 14 and over. The paints for the murals will be provided by the Brighton & Hove Business Forum and materials will be durable and environmentally friendly.


For more detailed information about how to enter the competition, artists should visit www.uniquebrighton.com and head to the Latest News section.
