How does the art competition work?

> Artworks can be created using any drawing materials including pastel, pen, crayon or water-based paint. Paper must be A2 sized or smaller. Pencils only at The Burrell Collection please

> Entrants must bring in their own materials but are able to borrow clipboards from the museum

> Artworks should be handed in at the museum enquiry desk before you leave. Remember to complete a label with your child/pupil’s details and attach to the back of the entry. Labels will be available at participating venues.

> Entries are judged within age bands and medal winners will be invited to an award ceremony in the autumn

All entries must be submitted by Tuesday 4th June at the latest.
