Welsh Football magazine announces their ‘Beautiful Game, Beautiful Wales’ art competition.

Welsh Football magazine, the national football magazine of Wales, is inviting Welsh artists to take part in the ‘Beautiful Game, Beautiful Wales’ Artwork Competition.

The magazine’s publishers hope that this competition will inspire artists, illustrators and graphic designers in Wales to create and submit images of works in any medium that represent the unique aspects of association football in Wales. The competition is open to amateur and professional artists of all ages, living or working in Wales. The closing date for submissions will in mid-December. Further details are available on the magazine’s website.

The publishers intend to offer a small cash prize and invite all shortlisted entrants to advertise their commission services or sales channels through its publications. The winning entry will also feature on a future cover of Welsh Football.


Editor David Collins said: “One of the greatest joys of watching football in Wales is that our games take place in such a wide range of settings: from breathtaking rural locations to post-industrial townscapes and cityscapes. I think that diversity is fertile ground for depiction in a range of graphic arts styles and media. I’m looking forward to seeing how the artists of Wales respond to the idea.

“Obviously, many of us are missing football at the moment and I hope that this competition will inspire works that provide some enjoyment and pleasure to our readers during a difficult time.

“We think this is a first. It’s certainly a very new venture for us, but in these times, when many of us can’t get out to the varied and wonderful places where we watch Welsh football, we think the artists of Wales could lift our spirits by creating works that depict them. In return, we’d love to provide some exposure for artists who find this subject matter appealing.”
