2019 Theme: Bridging the Gap

Denbies Wine Estate held its first Bacchus Award Competition in 2003 and continues to be the highlight of the art gallery located on the first floor at Denbies, hugely popular with visitors to the estate.  It presents an opportunity for artists of all levels of experience and calibre to exhibit their work in a professional yet relaxed atmosphere.  The competition is judged by a panel of five independent judges on the first day of the competition.  The exhibition is then opened for one week to the public, who are also given the opportunity to choose their favourite piece.
