About The OLIST



Connecting artists with UK 'Calls to Artists' and other UK arts opportunities.


Please Note: Due to the rise in the number of scams and profit making schemes targeting artists, we only post calls which are using the OESS system.

The OLIST is an initiative from Interactive Technology Ltd designed to keep artists informed of key entry dates for open exhibitions and art competitions in the UK. Providing continuous information on 'Open for Entry' dates as well as highlighting exhibitions which are close to their entry deadlines.

Registration to The OLIST is now via the OESS (Open Exhibition Submission and Selection) system which many of the UK top open exhibitions use to manage their artist entries. To register, please enter one of the open calls listed. Please note that the Mall Galleries manage a separate artist list so you will need to register with them separately.
