How to Enter

Criteria for entry into the competition:

· Develop a wildlife inspired mixed media piece of work.
This can be an object, item of clothing, image, functional, expressive or decorative item from any cultural background.
· There are no restrictions on size, media or combinations of media for your response e.g. embroidery into a photograph or knitting with wire.

· The emphasis should be on your own interpretation and not replication.

Terms and Conditions:

· This prestigious competition is open to all schools and invites students up to (and including) the age of 18, to submit their work.

· All entries must be original works of art; facsimiles of existing artworks will not be accepted.

· Clear evidence of personal research or a workbook should be available so that we can understand the inspiration and how the idea was developed.

· The deadline for receiving entries is 31st October 2022.

· All entries will be judged by Sarah Taylor, with the help of the team from Dryad Education.

· From the initial entries, a shortlist will be compiled. Those entries on the shortlist may be asked to provide further images and workbook evidence so we can judge all entries in more detail.

· A list of 10 finalists will then be announced by 13th January 2023.

· Where group entries are submitted, only one pupil and one teacher per school can take part in the Finalists’ Workshop.

Work must be supplied as a digital image in a suitable file format e.g. jpg.
