Fan Art, Manga and Gaming Illustrations wanted for two-day exhibition

2017 marks the third year of the South Bristol Gaming & Anime Expo and we’re on the look-out for more emerging artists for this unique gallery exhibition.

The exhibition is scheduled to be held on 4th and 5th November, during this year’s Expo, and aims to uncover, promote and introduce new talent to a wider audience.

Artists of all ages are invited to submit an image that can be enlarged to A1 size for exhibition. Your image will be credited, if your work is for sale we can include the price, and you’ll feature on our website with links to your work.

We are looking for:

Manga/gaming/character illustrations
One-page comics
Fan art

Please email with the title ‘Artist Submission’ and include the following:

For the exhibition:

Hi-res artwork attachment/s (suitable to be enlarged to A1)
Name/credit for display
Price (if relevant)

For our website:

Short biography – no more than 200 words
Links to your work webpage / Twitter handle / Instagram (if relevant)
Your logo (if relevant)


We are particularly keen to receive work from groups who are under-represented in the creative industries, including Black, Asian and other minority groups, people with disabilities, young people and young adults (ages 11-30), and residents of South Bristol.

We cannot guarantee that all artworks will be included in the final exhibition, so we want to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your submission!  We’ll notify all successful artists by Tuesday 31st October.

We do all printing in-house, so there will be no cost to artists – just an opportunity to promote and showcase your work in our Gaming Exhibition, running from 4th November until 16th December.

Artists are welcome to collect and keep the prints we create after the Expo.

Please email or contact Mena 0117 903 0444 of you have any questions.

Bringing artists and young people together

Do you have an idea for a project or workshop you’d like to trial with a group of creative young people?

At Knowle West Media Centre we want to offer emerging and established artists a ‘test space’ where they can trial new work.  We also want to give young people opportunities to meet and learn from interesting people – so we thought we’d bring the two groups together!

We’re looking for artists / technologists who would like to try out a new idea with a group of young people – perhaps to get their feedback in the development phase or perhaps to expand your experience of working with this age group.  There are no restrictions on tech or art form: your work could involve media and music, hands-on art and making, CAD and programming, performance or something else entirely…

Our Creative Hub sessions take place on Wednesdays at Knowle West Media Centre (Leinster Avenue, BS4 1NL) and there are two slots that we can welcome artists to: the early group from 4-6pm and the later group from 6.30-8.30pm.  The young people who attend range in age from 9 to 19 and during the session artists will be supported by one of our Youth Media Workers and have full use of our Training Rooms and computer facilities.

If you’d like to get involved please e-mail Sandra Manson with a short proposal for a workshop lasting around 1.5 hours.  We aren’t able to pay technologists or artists but please ask us about our Timebanking Scheme. We also hope you will find the opportunity useful in developing your practice and your skills in engaging with young people.

Examples of our current work with young people can be found here.
