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 National Art Competition Handbook 2020 will be available to download very soon.

With the support of

National Art Competition 2019

We are delighted to announce the winners of the ISA National Art Competition 2019.

With over 2000 entries, and over 200 fantastic regional winners displayed at the finals during the Autumn Study Conference, the standard of the artwork was incredible which made the judging tough for our adjudicators Sarah Casey (Senior Lecturer in Drawing and Installation at Lancaster University) and Joanne Crawford (Head of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds).

Congratulations to all the winners and a huge thanks to the hosting schools and Area Art Coordinators for all their hard work and support in organising the regional events. (Certificates and Art brochures will be sent early February)
