Landscape Artist of the Year

Story Vault | Independant Television Production | London

Landscape Artist of the Year is a competition format that airs on Sky Arts. In each episode, our host Stephen Mangan welcomes aspiring artists to compete to win the title of Landscape Artist of the Year by painting breathtaking views from across the UK and Ireland. To claim the prize the artists beat the clock and impress our esteemed expert judges, Tai Shan Schierenberg, Kathleen Soriano and Kate Bryan across the heats. Each heat winner goes on to paint another stunning location in the semi-final with three being selected to go through to the final. Each series the winner receives a £10,000 commission for a high profile institution.


Being highly visible and public, the Landscape Artist of the Year production format allows the broadcaster to have a high-profile presence around the country – exciting interest and curiosity among large crowds wherever it goes. Like “Portraits” the format also gives a huge and welcome boost to hundreds of struggling artists and leaves a lasting legacy through the final commissioned paintings. Artworks commissioned by the series are currently on exhibition or in the collections of the National Trust, the National Maritime Museum, and the Imperial War Museum, among many others.
