“Draw your hero” is an art competition designed to recognise the many different professions and people who are working tirelessly to bring Ireland through the Covid-19 pandemic.
Centred on the theme “not all superheroes wear capes”, the competition is open to young people aged between 6 and 14 years of age on the island of Ireland. It will be followed by a gallery exhibition and a special awards night to acknowledge a selection of both the artists and the heroes who played a part in getting Ireland through this crisis.
We are looking for children to submit their artwork based on the superhero in their lives whether that is their Mam or Dad who is a nurse or doctor on the frontline, their Gran or Grandad who are sticking out this social distancing like a trooper, all the way to their cousin who is delivering all the goods to our shops. Heroes come in many forms and this competition will be a way to share the children’s creative flair while also acknowledging the heroes who are taking incredible action and standing strong in the face of adversity.
A selection of some of our winners with their medals and prizes!
Our 12 finalists have been chosen:
A massive congratulations to all the finalists and a huge thank you to all the children and teens who entered. It was no easy task for the judges to arrive at a top 12 and they were absolutely blown away by the quality of each and every piece of art & story submitted. You should all be very proud of yourselves. I will be in touch with the parents of our finalists on Saturday August 8th to give further details on the online awards night.
