Enter the Mayor's Summer Art Competition

We're inviting children to get creative during the holidays and enter the Mayor's Summer Art Competition!

Mayor's Summer Art Competition 2To enter, we'd like you to design a piece of artwork which has been inspired by life during lockdown. This can be either a:

  1. drawing
  2. painting
  3. poem
  4. story

The closing date for submissions is Thursday 30 September. Participants need to live in Hillingdon, only one entry per a child is allowed and all work should be their own. Entrants should keep their original artwork, as if they are successful, the council may need to rescan or photograph these.

There are four different age categories: 5 to 7, 8 to 11, 12 to 14 and 15 to 16 years old, with prizes awarded to the winner, runner-up and third place child in each. All prizes have kindly been sponsored by Love Uxbridge (Uxbridge BID) and will be as follows:

  1. first prize - £25 voucher 
  2. second prize - £15 voucher
  3. third prize - £10 voucher
  • 5 to 7 and 8 to 11 years old - The Entertainer gift voucher
  • 12 to 14 and 15 to 16 years old - Waterstones gift voucher

Some entries will also be displayed in the window of Uxbridge Library!

Entries can be either digital or made by hand in any medium. We're looking for something a little different from the beautiful NHS rainbows! They should be emailed as JPEG or TIFF files to summerreadingchallenge@hillingdon.gov.uk, along with the first name and age of the child, and a short explanation of what inspired their entry.

We look forward to receiving all of your amazing artwork!
