If you experience problems with the online entry process, including payments by Stripe, or if you have any questions about entering Sketch2017 that can not be answered by reading the Rules & Guidelines, or by looking at the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) below, please contact the website Parker Harris by email or telephone 01372 462190.

SKETCH 2017 is open to all artists in the UK and internationally.

Book form sketchbooks should not exceed 32cm x 42cm when closed.

Composite drawings are allowed, but must be securely bound into a sketchbook form.

Digital sketchbooks are also acceptable if the drawing ‘pages’ are of related drawings retaining the integrity of the sketchbook ideal.

Artists are required to submit six double-page spreads of their sketchbook.  The pages do not have to be consecutive, but the images must be representative of the whole sketchbook.

If your sketchbook is selected you will be notified by SKETCH with all the delivery details for your sketchbook.

Check that each of your image files are 500kb or less and that they are the accepted file types (either JPG, TIFF, or PNG.) If you still encounter problems, please contact the website Parker Harris by email.
