Culture Cloud is an exciting new art competition, which innovatively bridges the digital and physical art spaces to showcase and discover new art talent from across the UK. The competition takes part in 3 stages. In the first stage, a team of curators from the New Art Exchange in Nottingham and its partner galleries, had the difficult task of narrowing down over 900 submissions to the 101 works you can now see on the Artfinder site.Your votes will decide which 40 works will make it through to the 3rd and final stage: the Culture Cloud exhibition at New Art Exchange. The overall winner will receive a cash prize of up to £2000, a personal iBook and the possibility of a future solo show at New Art Exchange.Voting on the Artfinder site lasts between 4th June and 5th July.
