This year’s Dulwich Festival is celebrating Spring.
The Children’s Art Competition wants to find out what SPRING means to you... It could be the budding of trees; seas of blooming flowers; new life; or all of these.
The Dulwich Festival invites children of all ages to enter this year’s Children’s Art Competition.
There are four age group categories Under 5s, 5 to 7, 8 to 11 and 12 to 18. The artwork should be two dimensional, a maximum size of A3 and should include entrants’ name, age, school or club and parents’ name, telephone number and email address so winners can be notified. This year due to uncertainties caused by Covid-19 we are asking that submissions are made by photographing the picture and submitting the entry online; one entry per child.
1st, 2nd & 3rd prizes in each category will be vouchers to spend at the Art Stationers in Dulwich Village. Prize-winners will have their artwork displayed in the windows of local shops and on the festival website.
This forms allows a parent, guardian, teacher or club leader to submit multiple entries for different children; please only submit one entry per child artist; if you are a teacher or club leader please make sure that you have the parent or guardians permission and that their details are correct.
Photographing your art work:
If you are photographing your work indoors, do so in a room with plenty of windows and natural light. Some artists prefer to photograph their work outdoors in the early morning or when it is cloudy or overcast, as indirect sunlight provides the best lighting. It is best not to use flash photography indoors or out.
Hang your work (try using blue or white tack) at a height where the middle of your piece will be parallel to where your camera will be—either on a tripod or resting sturdily on a table or other surface. Photograph against a neutral coloured background. Try to take the photograph so that the picture fills the frame with no or minimum boarders ensure it is centred and the image is not destored because it has been photographed from an angle. Choose hi-resolution. You may crop the photograph before you submit the entry if you wish.
The competition is open to all Children age 0-18.
The work must be solely made by the Child named as the artist.
You can use any technique: drawing, painting, collage, any printing technique, textile art, mixed media
