Art Competition 2023 ‘My Community & Me’


The theme of this year’s competition is ‘My Community & Me’ and gives budding young and older artists the opportunity to present their own interpretation of what their community means to them. It is a celebration of the places, people and shared moments that define our lives and we’d like you to consider your local community and your place within in. What makes your community different?  Is it the people within it? Is it the beauty you see every day? So it’s time to  unleash your imagination and use your artistic talents to convey what ‘community’ truly means to you.

Note:  St. Canice’s Credit Union will be in contact with all primary and secondary schools in local branch areas via email with entry forms, rules and closing date.
