In 2021 we are offering an alternative to the annual art competition: look out for details of an exciting new project coming this autumn, featuring art challenges and resources.
Meanwhile we hope you enjoy our online galleries featuring the National Galleries of Scotland Art Competition for Schools and Families 2020.
The 2020 winning artworks will be exhibited at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art until the end of September 2021. We hope their creativity inspires you to talk about and make your own art.
The 2020 competition invited families and schools to submit entries on a variety of themes inspired by artworks in the national collection. There were 53 prize winners from across Scotland and additional special prizes from our partners: Scottish Ballet and the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
Huge thanks to everyone who took part. These are just a small selection of all the inspiring, creative, bold, original artworks created by children across Scotland in 2020.
