Well here is the answer. Enter your masterpiece in for the Vlieseline Fine Art Textiles Award. (see below for details)

The winner of this prestigious award will take home the prize of £5,000 thanks to Vlieseline, and the runner up will receive £500 thanks to Her Quilt Materials.
As an international juried exhibition open to all amateur and practising artists using textiles as their medium, the Fine Art Textile Award recognises the creative talents and skills of a range of high-calibre artists.
Shortlisted work will be exhibited at The Knitting & Stitching Shows in the autumn as planned.
In the unlikely event that the shows do not go ahead as planned, the shortlisted pieces will be featured at The Festival of Quilts 2021 alongside the 2021 gallery. To accompany this, all shortlisted pieces will be featured in an exclusive Festival of Quilts magazine. 

Festival of Quilts also announced that any entries that do not get selected for the shortlist will have the opportunity to be transferred into Virtual Competition 2020
should the artist choose to do so and subject to the piece meeting the category criteria.
