Evolver Prize 2020

Coronavirus Statement

We are extending the deadline for this year's Evolver Prize competition. We think the best option is to keep the deadline rolling until we know when we can publish a prizewinners' issue and exhibit our selected top 50 submissions in a Wessex gallery space. As soon as a decision is made we will announce a new deadline on our website, Instagram and Facebook. Please email [email protected] if you have any questions.
