Art Competition 2018

Become a Force to be reckoned with for Enniscorthy Credit Unions Art Competition

Enniscorthy Credit Union is delighted to launch the hugely popular Credit Union Art Competition for 2018 which is now in its 35th year. The theme this year is 'The Force of Nature' and has been designed in an effort to get participants 'thinking green' by depicting their visions of a clean, pollution and litter-free environment. The competition is about encouraging and rewarding self expression, creativity and imagination among young artists throughout Ireland.

Competition entrants are free to express their creativity using a wide variety of media, the text of the theme does not have to be illustrated on the artwork.  We are looking for your interpretation of the theme through your art.

The entry can be drawn or painted in pencil, charcoal, pen or ink, felt-tip markers, crayon, pastel, water colours, gouache, acrylics, oils, poster colour or collage. Prints done from a lino block, wood block or any other method may also be submitted. No computer aided design (CAD) may be entered.
