The Credit Union Art Competition 2020 has landed!

This year’s theme is “Imagine More”, encouraging entrants to think past the current situation and imagine. Imagine More is influenced by the creative role art plays in Irish society and encourages participants to unlock their imagination and look at how art inspires us and our communities. Despite the current challenges, art has kept people from all walks of life connected and this year’s theme encourages participants to express this connectivity on paper or canvass.

Art has always been a huge part of Irish life and the Credit Union Art Competition, now in its 37th year, is dedicated to supporting and developing the arts in Irish society. Promoting and encouraging involvement in the arts across communities is an important message we want to spread. Art plays a critical role in enriching the lives of everyone and is central to sustaining, and increasing connections. Entrants are urged to reflect on the crucial role that the arts play in Irish society and how they help bind communities.

There are no age limits to the competition and it is open to children aged seven years and under right through to anyone aged 18 years and over.

Winners at local level will go on to a regional level, and regional winners will progress to the national awards ceremony in February 2021. Closing Date is Friday 23rd October 2020.
