The competition is open to everybody and there is no restriction on media used; sculpture, painting, installation, photography, and mixed media art works are all eligible and welcome, providing that they have a justifiable link to coffee.

The Coffee art Project is a non-profit initiative aimed at encouraging artists by providing them with an open platform to showcase their works. We are funded by donations, sponsorship and art sales. All works must be for sale in the exhibition(s) and on the Coffee art Project online gallery. For each artwork sold, the Coffee art project will take a commission of 50%. 25% will be given to the artist and the remaining 25% will be donated to charity.
The Coffee art Project supports Project Waterfall, which is committed to bringing clean water to communities which grow our coffee through the Allegra Foundation and other registered charities. So far, Project Waterfall, has raised more than £240,000 and delivered clean water to over 11,000 people in Tanzania and Rwanda in partnership with WaterAid.
