This week we had Sports Day and my daughter’s Leavers Assembly and we’re on the count down to the Summer holidays! We can’t wait for 6 weeks to relax, although I know my children will need some ideas to keep them busy. I have two creative children who love to create and I found a brilliant competition for crafty kids.
BIC® KIDS Young Artist Award competition
Is your child’s imagination constantly running away with them? Are they always drawing on any scrap of paper they can find? After receiving 1,000+ amazing entries and over 20,000 votes last year, the competition that gives budding young artists a chance to let their creativity shine is now open for 2019. This summer, the BIC® KIDS Young Artist Award is giving proud parents across the UK and Republic of Ireland the opportunity to see their child’s drawings graduate from the fridge door to billboards!
Open to all 5 to 11-year-olds, entrants are encouraged to exercise their artistic flair, let their imaginations run wild and draw with complete freedom. Entrants should draw a landscape piece on plain A4 paper, use pencils, pens and/or crayons and not draw any famous characters or logos to be eligible to win. Judges will award points for everything from creativity and use of colour, to composition and subject matter. Once kids have created their showstoppers, parents can enter by simply visiting www.bickids.co.uk/youngartist and uploading the artwork before the deadline on Sunday, August 4.
BIC® KIDS Young Artist Award prizes
The BIC® KIDS Young Artist Award celebrates the creativity of children from across the country, with an expert judging panel selecting 13 finalists to represent their region, with their work being displayed on their very own, local billboards from late August. A public vote will then decide the ultimate winner, whose drawing will go nationwide in late September and win a creative art party for up to 10 people. Entries are open from Monday, July 1 to Sunday, August 4.
As well as the priceless opportunity to have their drawings published, the 13 finalists will win a bundle of BIC® KIDS goodies. Specifically designed to help children hone their artistic talent, these goodies will include an array of exciting stationery products including the BIC® KIDS Evolution Ecolutions® Colouring Pencils and BIC® KIDS Kid Couleur Felt Tip Colouring Pens.
