Art Competition

The ISA National Art Competition is an annual event that offers ISA Members’ schools an opportunity to showcase their pupils’ art and for teachers to share best practice and ideas.  There are dozens of categories which cover different age groups and genres, from 2D art, through to fashion and photography.

The Regional Art Competitions 2021 are now open for entries.

Please note that, depending on the government restrictions nearer the time, the regional art competitions and the finals might be held online. If you have any questions regarding the regional rounds please contact the art coordinator for your area (details for each below).

The National Art Finals will be held at the Autumn Study Conference on Thursday 11 & Friday 12 November 2021 at The DoubleTree by Hilton, Paradise Way, Walsgrave on Sowe, Coventry CV2 2ST.
