Credit Union Art Competition 2019 – The Results

We were delighted with the number of entries we received in every category in this year’s Credit Union Art Competition, themed ‘Walk of Life’.  The competition seeks to encourage young artists to draw or paint using pencil, charcoal, pen or ink, felt tip markers, crayon, pastel, water colours, gouache, acrylics, oils, poster colour or collage.  Entrants had free reign to express their thoughts, opinions, visions and hopes on this theme.  Each first place winner in the St. Canice’s Credit Union stage of the competition will progress to regional level and regional winners will go on to the national finals in early 2020.
