Painting Competition

Have your painting feature in The Darkness of the Moor

We are working with South West Art Workshops to coordinate an exciting painting competition to find the painting which will be featured in the film. The competition is open to South West-based artists under the age of 30. The finalist paintings will be exhibited at a prestigious event and be sold to raise funds for The Prince’s Trust.


All you need to do to enter is:

Organisers: One Big Mop Film Productions and South West Art Workshops are coordinating a competition to create a painting to feature in the upcoming film “The Darkness Of The Moor”. The competition will also raise funds for The Prince’s Trust.

Details: The competition is open to artists and students under the age of 30 from the South West. The winning painting will be selected at a highly publicised fundraising event at Dartington Hall in Totnes, Devon , and it will thereafter be exhibited at the main Dartmoor National Park Tourism Centre in Princetown, Devon for 7-8 months. The painting will be sold for auction at the film premiere at which the artist will attend. The other paintings will be for sale to raise funds the for The Prince’s Trust.

When: The competition is now open with entries accepted up to 1st September 2016. The exhibition and competition winner will be selected at the Winner’s Selection Reception on the evening on 15th September 2016. Finalists will be invited to attend.

The Prince’s Trust: The artists/entrants must be under 30 as per the criteria of The Prince’s Trust Business Enterprise Course. South West Art Workshops is supported by The Prince’s Trust and has greatly benefited from the Business Enterprise Course, and they would like to help others do the same. The film is to be shot on Dartmoor of which some is owned by The Duchy of Cornwall.

The painting will feature in a scene in the film which describes the Great Storm of Widecombe-in-the-Moor. The artist can use a certain amount of artistic license and their own interpretation of these folklore events.


The script reads:

A painting of Widecombe Church with the Huntsman on the church steeple as it’s struck by a bolt of lightning hangs on the wall in the inn. When Heather asks:” What’s that?”, the barman Lynhur replies: “Ooh… that be the great storm of Widecombe Church. That be when the devil in the guise of the Huntsman blasted in through the steeple! Why he just couldn’t use the door like everyone else I don’t know”.

The requirements of the painting are:

Submission deadline: 1st September 2016 (online)

Selection of Finalists date: 7th September 2016

Delivery of painting (selected finalists): 13th September to Dartington Hall, Totnes
