A New 'Great Exhibition' Award for 2023

Following on from the success of the Lewis Carroll award at the Belvoir Castle Steampunk Fairytale weekend, the Ministry are delighted to reveal that we are adding another award to our roster which will be called the H.G. Wells award.

This medal will be awarded for the best (previously unseen) Time Travel inspired piece of steampunk 2D or 3D artwork, to be displayed at The Town That Never Was at Blists Hill Victorian Town (24-25 June).

If you would like to submit an entry for the award, please let us know by filling in the form below. That way we can be sure that we will allocate the appropriate amount of space for the exhibits. 

Entries for the award will be displayed on Saturday and Sunday. They will be judged blind on Saturday after the event closes and the winner will be presented with one of our new MoS 'Award for Creativity' medals on the Sunday. Medal number 001 was awarded at Belvoir Castle, so the 2023 H.G.Wells award medal will bear the number 002!

And remember - it's never too late to enter a time-travel competition!
