Artists eager to bag Singapore's richest painting award of US$25,000 (S$31,220) at the United Overseas Bank (UOB) Painting Of The Year competition, will now have double the usual length of time to come up with a winning piece of work.

Entry forms for the annual contest, which is into its 33rd year, are available from Wednesday, almost four months before the final date of submission on October 12. The forms may be accessed online at www.uobpoy.com or picked up at all UOB branches here.

Original paintings created as early as two years ago are eligible for submission.

The contest, which has regularly tweaked its rules over the years to finetune the competition, will not, however, introduce major changes to its criteria this year.
