Rotary Wellington, like many other Rotary organisations in Great Britain and Ireland, run several youth competitions.  If you were aged between 7 and 17 on 31 August 2021, and have an interest in art, consider entering our Young Artist competition. There are three competitions for different age groups (a) 7-10 years of age (b) 11-13 years and (c) 14-17 years. Winners of our local competitions may progress to district, regional and national competitions.

To enter, a competitor must submit one finished 2-dimensional, up to a maximum size of A2, unframed, piece of artwork based upon the theme, ‘Colours of Nature’ using one or more of pen & ink, paint, collage and print making. Each entrant must provide with their submission a brief sentence describing the relationship of the artwork to the theme.

Pieces of artwork that are part of a current educational exam portfolio are not eligible for the competition, due to educational exam board regulations.

Artwork will not be returned unless specifically requested. Winning entries to the national competition will be retained for display at the Volunteer Expo event at the NEC at the beginning of May 2022.

The winning entry in each age category in our local competition will receive a gift card to the value of £30.

The latest submission date for entries to the 2021-22 competition is Friday 18th February 2022.

Judges will consider technical merit; content and composition; imagination and style.
