Stephen Wiltshire Competition

It's time to get creative.

We've launched a brand new art competition to give you the opportunity to show off your artistic talents and memory recall skills.

MY TOWN ART COMPETITION

We've teamed up with the world-renowned architectural artist, Stephen Wiltshire, MBE, to bring you the ‘My Town’ art competition.

The competition requires you to recreate an iconic landmark or building from your home town and recall all the details from memory, just as Stephen does to create his stunning city landscapes.

This exciting and unique competition is open to anyone aged between 11 and 19 years old and has come at just the right time to help you maintain your creative flow and provide a welcome distraction to the things that are going on in the world right now.

There are three age categories in which to enter:

11-13 years old,

14-16 years old,

17-19 years old,

THE PRIZE

There will be a winner and runner up in each of the three categories. The six lucky students will have the opportunity to travel to London to meet Stephen at his gallery, enjoy some lunch and receive a signed copy of his book, See The Bigger Picture. The three winners from each category will receive a £100 gift voucher and the three runners up from each category will receive a £50 voucher.

The artwork will be judged by a panel of creative experts from the college, as well as Stephen, to decide a winner and runner up in each age group.

HOW TO ENTER

Drawings should be produced in pen, pencil, or ink. The medium should be paper, a sheet no bigger than A2 (420mm x 594mm, 16.53 x 23.39inches).

Entries should be submitted by email to: nigel.ryan@escg.ac.uk by 5pm on Friday 19th June 2020. Please email your artwork, the title of your piece, your full name, age, and your current school or college.

The entries will be judged during the week commencing 22nd June and the winners and runners up will be contacted and announced on the college website and social media on 29th June 2020.

A MESSAGE FROM STEPHEN
