Entrants are required to draw, paint, or collage a picture of a fun Olympic sport for animals! Maximum size 50 x 40cm.
You can show your animals competing in a real Olympic sport or create a new sport for them.
Imagine Long-Jump for Kangaroos, frogs and flees, animals racing, the elephant gymnastics team, weight-lifting ants, or lizards stretching their tongues to catch the furthest fly!
The competition is divided into two age-groups:
- 6-10 years
- 11-15 years
1st, 2nd and 3rd prize will be awarded to winners in each age-group.
- 1st Prize: £50 worth of art materials. Sponsored by Jackson’s Art Supplies.
- 2nd Prize: Print-making session with artist Kirsten Schmidt.
- 3rd Prize: £20 Voucher for Jackson’s Art Supplies.
Plus we have now added a ’5 Years and Under’ category, with prizes for little artists to win too!
We are excited to announce that the Animalympics competition will be judged by Walthamstow artist Carl Harris aka ‘Catboy’, who illustrated this year’s E17 Art Trail Guide cover; shown right.
As well as the chance to win great prizes, a selection of entries will also be displayed in the Animalympics Art Exhibition at E17 Art House in May 2012!
