Become a NOA Ambassador


Being an Ambassador for NOA is a charitable enterprise about the love for art and your belief in our ethos, which is to be truly open to all artists, of all ages and walks of life, to be judged anonymously. We are a Not for Profit Art Charity striving to nurture creativity, bring new opportunities to artists and provide a platform which they can exhibit, sell and promote themselves and their work through the medium of our annual Competition.

We are looking for enthusiastic, pro-active art lovers and artists who would like to give something back and help us to spread the NOA movement far and wide!


Ways You Can Help


Word of Mouth We need your help to get our name out there!


Source Artists Tell your fellow artists about the opportunities and recognition available through NOA


Build our Mailing List and Encourage Submissions Throughout the year, we will be liaising with you, sending you our latest news and any new marketing material to send to artists and art lovers throughout the country


Volunteer Would you like to come and man the show at the Royal College of Art for the day, greeting people and talking about the art? We need volunteers for various occasions throughout the year from manning the exhibitions to handling the Artwork, showing it to the judges and repacking everything!


Join in with our Social Media outlets: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Pinterest


Source Galleries We are looking to find associated galleries throughout the UK and Ireland that would be interested in linking with us. We have big plans to collaborate with lots of Art Galleries around the UK, which will benefit our artists, the galleries, and NOA. In addition, we may ask the gallery to host a pop-up exhibition or the NOA Collection when it tours the UK!


Please Become an Ambassador! Join us in generating a massive art communication network!

We endeavor to have a proactive NOA Ambassador in each of the counties, including as many Galleries, Museums and Art Universities and Colleges as possible across the entire UK and Ireland.


There is lots to gain from joining the NOA Family by becoming an Ambassador, so please do contact Neil on [email protected] if you would like to learn more.




So much of today's activities concern social networking. Ambassadors across the country use Facebook and Twitter, Pinterest,Tumblr, Instagram. Please work with us on these platforms.

Our facebook page is:  National Open Art - NOA




Chichester is situated on the South Coast of England between Brighton and Portsmouth.


At the heart of our own city, we have the famous Chichester Festival Theatre where for many years we have held the NOA exhibition. Nearby the Gulbenkian Award winning Pallant House Gallery has one of the finest collections of Modern British Art in the country. Within two miles we have The Cass Sculpture Foundation with 26 acres of monumental British Sculpture. Nearby is Goodwood House and a few miles away Petworth House and Arundel Castle,  both with their world famous art collections. West Dean College with both graduate and post graduate arts facilities is just outside the city but within the city are The University of Chichester and Chichester College both with well-respected art faculties. Chichester Cathedral with 900 years of history has many fine pictures and works of art including the Marc Chagall window, a John Piper tapestry, John Skelton, Graham Sutherland and sculpture by Philip Jackson. Fishbourne Roman Palace, one of the most important Roman sites North of The Alps has, like Bignor, very important Roman Mosaic floors. The Weald and Downland Open Air Museum at Singleton has one of the finest interactive craft and heritage museums of its type in the world........... so there is all this as well as NOA... National Open Art!   Indeed Chichester is very much a “City of The Arts”.

All events held by our charity, including the National Open Art Prize and Exhibitions, are primarily to raise funds for the benefit of the charity to enable it to fulfil its aims and objectives.
