The first is for children aged 5-15 and is a competition to design an idea for a 2D or 3D piece of art for display on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square. This competition is open to all children in London and last year over 1600 entries were received. More information is available by following the link below, including previous entries which might help to give you inspiration! Entries should be handed in to Ms Turner by Friday 14th March.
The second is for children of any age and is a competition to design a bookmark. Winning entries will be made into bookmarks, mass produced and distributed to book shops nationwide! There are two age categories for primary school children: up to 8 years of age and 9-12 years of age. Entry forms for this competition are available from the school office and entries are due in to Ms Turner by Friday 28th March. Further information and inspiration is available by following the link below.
We hope that you will encourage your children to enter one or both of these competitions and that you will enjoy watching them develop their artistic skills at home as they prepare their entries! Many thanks, as always, for your support.
