Calling all creative kids
THE competition that turns the most vivid scene from a kid’s imagination into a sky-high reality is back and bigger than ever.
Returning this summer, the BIC KIDS Young Artist Award is giving proud parents the opportunity to see their child’s drawings graduate from the fridge door to a massive public billboard.
Open to all five to 11-year-olds, entrants are encouraged to draw with complete freedom. Judges will award points for everything from creativity and use of colour to composition and subject matter.
In continued partnership with Mumsnet, the BIC Young Artist Award celebrates the creativity of children from across the country, with 13 finalists selected to represent their region before an overall champion is crowned.
Entries are now open so once your kids have created their masterpieces, enter simply by visiting www.bickids.com/uk/ youngartist and upload the artwork before the deadline of Sunday August 5.
An expert judging panel made up of creatives from the marketing, publishing and illustration industries will select the regional finalists, whose work will be displayed on regional billboards from late August. A public vote will then decide the ultimate winner, whose drawing will go nationwide in late September.
As well as the priceless opportunity to have their drawings published, the 13 deserving finalists will win a hamper full of BIC® KIDS goodies.
Last year’s competition was a great success and we were overwhelmed by the quality of the artwork we received.
We can’t wait for this year’s imaginative entries to start pouring in. There will be some proud parents, that’s for sure.
