Schools Art Competition

Sana Javed, Kilgraston School, Overall Secondary Winner 2019After 15 years of running this popular school’s art competition across Perth and Kinross, last year we introduced the winning formula to all pupils across the Marr region of Aberdeenshire. For 2020 we are extending the competition further afield in Aberdeenshire and into the Angus region.

“Create a piece of art illustrating a ‘game or wildlife species from the British Isles in its natural habitat’. Artwork can be produced in any medium, creativity is encouraged. In addition, there is a prize for the best 50-word description of the artwork, these must be in the individual’s own words.”

In time we hope to spread the competition further and further across Scotland, our next area being Moray. If anyone would like to be involved anyway, please do not hesitate to contact Iona on

We received thousands of entries last year and hope for the same again in 2020. The work that comes in always impresses our panel of judges, who are continually challenged to choose winners of the 28 different prizes for each different region. These are presented at separate events to which all winners, parents and teachers are invited, a great celebration of local talent.
