6 great reasons to participate in EOY 2018

Help a Great Cause

EOY was started as a means to thank young artists for their generosity at The Magic Bus Gala Auction. Since then EOY exhibitions have supported other great causes. 'The Maddi Foundation' is our 2018 charity and your art can help raise funds for vital research and treatment efforts in the hope of not only stopping progression of SPG15 but also finding a cure.

Professional Support

You will enjoy the support of experienced art professionals, curatorship, collectors, mentors and entrepreneurs - behind you every step of the way. Whether you have exhibited nationally or never at all, this is going to be of great help to you in your artistic career.

Raise Your Profile

EOY 2018 works with local and national media to ensure great media coverage of the exhibition.  The EOY 2018 website and social media platforms will be widely shared and promoted in the months leading up to the event and your profiles shared with our mailing lists.

Exclusive Venue

Opportunity to exhibit alongside other talented emerging and popular young artists at an exclusive venue in the historic town of Aldeburgh on the beautiful Suffolk coast.  Aldeburgh is a well loved and renowned location for many and a veritable 'hotspot' for the arts.  Moving EOY to the coast is an incredibly exciting development for the event.


If selected, you and a guest will be invited to attend the exclusive Private View.  A great opportunity for all important networking and the chance to discuss your work with our buyers and collectors.
