The Wells Art Contemporary Awards (WAC) is an open competition for contemporary visual art that is gaining praise and respect in Britain and abroad. It was established in 2012 by a group of artists and their friends in Wells, the beautiful cathedral city in the South-West of England. But an idea that came to life around kitchen and dining tables has already established a strong presence in the London art world and is drawing artists from places as diverse as Australia, Azerbaijan, India, Italy, Korea, Japan, and the United States, as well as all over Britain.
While competitions like Nikon’s Small World in Motion, and Short Animation Film in Canada, Wells Art Contemporary Awards presents a unique platform to artists all around the world.
