Art Competition

The ISA National Art Competition is held annually.  It is a wonderful opportunity for schools to showcase their pupils’ art and for teachers to share best practice and ideas.  There are dozens of classes to 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, 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 qualifications please contact the art coordinator for your area (see below).
