Scriveners Company Peter Esslemont Prize for Calligraphy and Illumination 2014
The prize will be awarded in the form of a certificate, a cheque for £500, and an opportunity to exhibit examples of the winner’s work at a major livery dinner in the City of London. These works will also be featured on the Scriveners Company website.
Entries should consist of up to three pieces of original work by the entrant, which should not have been entered into any other competition, and which will be judged by a panel of Scriveners Company and College of Arms calligraphers and artists. Entries should be received in the Clerk’s office (address below) by Friday 3 October 2014. The decision of the judges will be final. There are no age restrictions. The only requirement is that entrants should live and/or work in the UK.
Last year’s winner was Anthea Power, who received her prize from the Master Scrivener and Mrs Ann Esslemont in the presence of the Rt Hon The Lord Mayor, Alderman Fiona Woolf CBE, at a lunch at Mansion House last December.
