2021 CU Art Competition

By: Kilrush-CU

Following the success of last year’s theme for the Credit Union Art Competition, we are once again asking entrants to tap into their imagination.  This year’s theme “Imagine”, encourages people to explore their thoughts, hopes and dreams, and portray them on paper or canvass.

This year’s competition encourages participants to use their imagination to explore the amazing world which exists inside our thoughts. Using their imagination to escape from the everyday worries and stresses of life, and to use art and imagination hand in hand to create a masterpiece, entrants to this year’s competition will all bring something exciting and creative to the competition.

The Credit Union Art Competition, now in its 38th year, is dedicated to supporting and developing the arts in Irish society. Art plays an important role in building community spirit and inspires everyone to the contribution that we can make to its development. Promoting and encouraging involvement in the arts across communities is an important message we want to spread.

The competition is free to enter and there are no age limits to the competition and it is open to children aged seven years and under right through to 18 years and over. There is also an additional needs category.

Click here for an entry form.  Please ensure forms are completed fully and signed where appropriate.

Closing date for entry to the Kilrush Credit Union competition is Friday 22nd October 2021.

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 level. National winners will be announced at an award ceremony to be held in early 2022.

Please make special note of the following:

  • There is no need for the artist to illustrate the text of the theme on the art piece
  • All entries must be submitted on either A3 (420 x 297mm) or A2 (594 x 420mm) size paper or board and MUST BE IN LANDSCAPE SHAPE NOT PORTRAIT. Portrait shaped entries or incorrect size entries must be disqualified from adjudication.
