We received more than 500 submissions from all around the world for our Inspiration from the Otherworldly art competition 2023. Entries included everything from paintings and drawings to textiles, sculpture, film and photography, and we loved seeing every single one! From this incredible selection, the judges each chose 10 entries for the shortlist. Of the shortlist, they selected one of their favourites to become their judge's choice. And finally, they unanimously agreed on a winning piece. Today, we announce the results of the 2023 Inspiration from the Otherworldly art competition...

Congratulations to our winner!
