Much of the cultural world’s attention will be focussed on Edinburgh and its famous festival over the coming weeks but it’s no secret that Glasgow is really where cutting-edge creativity shines in Scotland. Now Talenthouse and O2 are offering young artists, illustrators, designers and graffiti artists a cool opportunity to create an original piece of work to take pride of place at the city’s O2 Academy, one of Glasgow’s most popular live music venues which is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its relaunch this year.
As well as seeing their work on display in the iconic venue – where some 150,000 music fans flock every year – the winners will also receive £1,000 cash and a pair of gig tickets. A People’s Choice Award will see another creative scoop £500. The judging panel includes Alex Kapranos, the lead singer of Franz Ferdinand, who said: “Glasgow has always been a fertile place for art and music. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes through.”
