Exhibition Ended

Art Competition for Schools and Families

From Thu 5 Nov 2020 - Sun 10 Oct 2021

This exhibition has now ended!


Experience all 53 amazing winning entries from the competition.

This is the 17th year of the National Galleries of Scotland Art Competition. Schools from 24 council areas of Scotland submitted entries, with 16 of them represented among the winners. Also, in this most unusual of years, we accepted entries from families to acknowledge their role in home learning.

The winning entries on display are spread across five themes and cetegories. The nursery theme is 'If I Had a Pet', the primary 1-3 theme is 'Toys', the primary 4-7 theme is 'Magical Creatures and Fierce Monsters', the secondary 1-3 theme is 'Climate Change', and the special education theme is 'Amazing Nature'.
