Walk of Life Art Competition

Wexford Credit Union Art Competition 2019

Take the Walk of Life for the Credit Union Art Competition.

The ‘Walk of Life’ theme builds on last year’s theme of ‘The Force of Nature.’  This encouraged participants to draw inspiration from the challenges facing the environment and our planet. Entrants this year are being invited to think about how society and communities change, grow and develop for the better.

Irish communities have made many positive changes in recent years to ensure the country is a more inclusive, diverse and liberal place to live in. Participants are encouraged to draw inspiration from the positive changes they might have witnessed in their own local communities, or in wider society. Alternatively, they may want to depict the positive changes they have gone through themselves as individuals, as they continue the journey through life.

Winners, runners-up and merit award-winners at local level will go on to represent the credit union at regional level and from there, winning artworks will go forward to national level. Local winners will receive their prizes at a local prize-giving ceremony in Wexford Credit Union.

There are two categories – General and Special – with the following age groups in each category:

Age limit applying as at December 31st 2018

7 years and under inclusive
8 – 10 years inclusive

The Special Category allows participants with a physical or intellectual disability to be actively encouraged by their teachers to submit entries in free expression painting or drawing, without the restrictions of the competition’s official theme (should they so wish).

Entries for the Special Category and those under 18 years will require the signature of a teacher or facilitator or guardian to declare the work is the unaided effort of the entrants.

Please ensure that the parental/guardian consent has been completed on all entry forms.

Application Forms are available in each each of our offices and our website – link below.

Closing date from individuals and schools is Wednesday October 23rd at 5pm. Entries can be dropped into our office at Anne Stree, Wexford.
