The Art and Design Challenge

Art and Design are diverse!

We would like to see entries that express your artistic talents in any medium: fine art (oils, acrylic, water-colour, pastel or pencil) design (posters), sculpture, print-making, illustration, or photography.

You could be an art student or somebody who just wants to have the opportunity to show your creative side. The work could be reflective of the situation we are in or a view of the future, hopes, dreams, ambitions. It could be a still-life of what you have around you or a positive expression of the future.

Judging Criteria

The judges will be looking for:

  • Originality and creativity – make your theme/subject stand out from the crowd - Ideas and concepts – is it inspiring?
  • Quality of the artistic composition
  • Inspiration – does your art/design work outside of the competition i.e. in the real world?

Entry Requirements

However you produce your work, it needs to be photographed or scanned and uploaded online as a pdf or jpeg – file size no more than 2Mb.

If you are under 18, we require your name, DOB and your parent’s name and contact email address with your entry. Over 18, we require your name, DOB and email address.
