Our latest art based partnership is with National Open Art – a Not For Profit Arts Charity supported by sponsors, patrons and friends. NOA organises an annual independent art competition, open to both amateur and professional artists in the UK and Ireland. Each year a new judging panel comprising of Royal Academicians, curators, critics and art professionals selects prize winners from over 4000 entries across a broad variety of artistic mediums and styles.

The vision and strategy of the NOA is set out as follows –

Our Vision

To provide opportunities for artists to promote their work and encourage them to pursue a life in art.

Our Mission

Our purpose is both to discover and support aspiring artists regionally and nationally through a socially inclusive art prize providing artists and the public with open access to visual arts through education and exhibitions.

NOA offers personal development through initiatives and outreach programmes to encourage artists from an early age and to inspire those working against social challenges, isolation or exclusion.

Our Core Values

  • Open to all
  • High profile judges
  • Complete anonymity in judging to reduce exclusion
  • Judged on talent, not connections
  • Affordable competition entry fees for artists, students and young people, and children
  • Free admission to the annual National Open Art Exhibition
  • To be approachable and friendly


Flight Logistics/ShipArt supports these values and we are delighted to be involved in the activities of the NOA.
