The Art & Framing Industry Awards – 2007

May 23, 2007 on 7:14 pm | In Art Industry | No Comments

The Art and Framing Awards Event 2007 took place earlier in the month, 12th May 2007 in London at the Shaw Theatre & Novotel Hotel Euston.

Hosted by the Fine Art Trade Guild, The Art & Framing Industry Awards is considered to be the UK Art Industry’s premier awards. All sectors of the industry are represented at the event, not just the large players and are in with a chance of winning. The awards themselves are, in essence, a chance to celebrate the success stories of the last year within the Art Industry.

To enter the awards one normally has to apply the previous September and previous years have shown that winners of the awards may receive national media recognition and possibly new avenues of business.

Some photos of the event are available to view.

Just off the top of my head, two premier UK artists I know who have won awards in previous years and seen benefits from the recognition are:

John Silver, who was awarded the 1998 “Best New Published Artist” Awarded by the Fine Art Trade Guild.

Nigel Hemming received the Fine Art Trade Guild’s “Published Artist of the Year” award in 1996.

Incidentally they are both known for their canine art.
