Art Competition 2019

Art Competition

The Credit Union Art Competition continues to be one of the most successful annual promotions undertaken by the credit union movement. The competition strives to encourage artists throughout Ireland through self-expression, creativity and imagination whilst also raising awareness of credit unions at local, regional and national level.

The theme of the competition in 2019 was “The Walk of Life”.

As usual Enniscorthy Credit Union received a large number of entries from the schools in our common bond area, there were over 300 to sort through, and it was really interesting to see how the theme was interpreted.

Local winners received their prizes at a local prize-giving ceremony on Thursday December 5th in Enniscorthy Credit Union. National winners will receive prizes at an award ceremony to be held in Croke Park, Dublin in February 2020.
