Established in 2013, the annual competition offers a platform for emerging artists to showcase their work.
The 2018 competition challenged entrants to create an artwork inspired by the theme of Love and Money, a common thread that runs through the three productions in this year's Glyndebourne Tour, Verdi's La traviata, Massenet"s Cinderella (Cendrillon) and La traviata: Behind the Curtain, presented by Chris Addison.
Born in Maidstone in 1993, Creasey studied for a BA in Fine Art at the University of Brighton and will undertake his MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art this month.
As part of his competition prize, Creasey will see his winning image
on the cover of 10,000 copies of the Glyndebourne Tour
His work will also be on display as part of an exhibition at Glyndebourne this autumn, alongside all shortlisted artworks.
Sam Creasey said of his competition win:
'Having never visited Glyndebourne before, I am happy to be given the opportunity to exhibit my work there and experience opera in such a great venue by watching La traviata, this autumn.
"The enrichment and exposure resulting from more people experiencing my work is also most welcome.'
Made up of three conjoined panels reminiscent of a theatre backdrop, Creasey's striking artwork portrays a futuristic-looking TV studio and includes pop culture references to singer Taylor Swift and TV show Love Island.
Glyndebourne is an English country house, located near Lewes, in East Sussex, that hosts a free-standing opera house in its grounds.
