Daffodil Art Competition

By the Friends of the Swiss Garden

Spring is just around the corner!
Could you create a brilliant piece of art inspired by spring’s most beautiful flower, the daffodil? Why not let your imagination run wild and create something amazing for our competition? You could win a prize and your work might even be exhibited at our upcoming Daffodil Festival.

How to enter

The competition is for children only. Prizes will be awarded in three age groups: under 8s, 8-12, and 13-16 years.

Entries must be no larger than A3 size and must be in paint, pastels, acrylics, pens, pencil or collage. Photographs will also be accepted. We’re sorry that we can’t accept 3D sculptures.

Please email a jpg of your completed artwork or photograph to: friendsoftheswissgarden@outlook.com with the heading ‘DAFFODIL COMPETITION’. Don’t forget to tell us your name and age group and please include a phone number. If you’re a parent or guardian sending an entry on behalf of a child, please include both the child’s name and your own.

The closing date for submissions is midnight on 12th March. Winners will be announced shortly afterwards.

The judges will choose a single overall winner from all entries and will award a first prize and three runner-up prizes in each age category.

The winning and runner-up entries will have the opportunity to be included in an exhibition at Shuttleworth during our Daffodil Festival from 21st March to 4th April 2021.

Photos of the best artworks will be displayed in an online exhibition on: www.friendsoftheswissgarden.org.
