Thank you, for the excellent organisation, and for inviting me to participate in the contest. Charles Nightingale..

Last night was a really most enjoyable event. The setting was perfect for the exhibition and the atmosphere was friendly and had a real buzz about it. I was delighted to have won the award and then doubly pleased to find I had won the Hilton award as well!, Paul Rodhouse

Its been a huge confidence boost and Im keen to get stuck into some new work!

Thanks again for all your hard work and encouragement, it’s given me a great footing for 2020 Dario Fisher.

It was an honour to be asked to the Cambridge Invitational Art contest and to see the fantastic art work, and to be able to choose my favourite one. I was so pleased to be able to hand out the awards and to meet all the artists.

Mayor of Cambridge, Cllr Gerri Bird

The Cambridge Invitational Art Contest and Exhibition 2019 Preview and Awards ceremony was a wonderful evening, co hosted by Stacy Bodkin from Castle Fine Art.

The prestigious awards for the inaugural contest were presented by the Mayor of Cambridge Cllr Gerri Bird along with representatives from our sponsors' Mid-Summer House, DoubleTree by Hilton, Scudamores Punting and Tindalls Art.

New friendships and connections were made, photos and interviews with the 12 artists for a new web based art channel were also conducted in a media room and will be available in December.


The winning Artworks for this years contest were exhibited at Castle Fine Art, Grand Arcade.

The Contest has raised money for our chosen charity Arts and Minds who were in attendance

 and in addition our gallery's commission from all sales was donated to them.

I would like to thank all the artists who have taken part this year and those who contributed in creating a new and exciting contest for the City of Cambridge.

B.Thornton - Contest Organiser.
