London Luton Airport is looking for talented local artists from Bedfordshire to exhibit in the Airport’s Gateway Gallery in 2014 and 2015.

In the past two years the airport awarded residency to five local artists in its Gateway Gallery following a successful talent search.

The Gallery offers a significant opportunity for artists to showcase their work to a large and varied audience, with an average of 25,000 passengers travelling through the Airport every day.

Past competition winner Lauren Clemmet said: “The opportunity to have an exhibition of my artwork at the Gateway Gallery was invaluable. It gave me great exposure locally through press coverage and also worldwide through people travelling through the Airport. I sold a significant number of paintings at, or because of, the exhibition and received emails and messages from people as far away as America who have appreciated my work which they saw at the Gateway Gallery.”

Submissions may be of existing work or pieces created especially for the Gallery and can take any 2D format. Application forms to enter the competition can be found at together with further details for entry, all applications must be received by 12pm on 17th February 2014.
