The art competition aimed at encouraging children to express themselves by creating unique artworks that feature their special green corner – whether it’s a park, garden, landscaped street, alley, or even their own backyard or terrace. Participants were asked to showcase a green space dear to their hearts while also promoting awareness about the significance of green spaces in their daily lives.
The competition was aimed at school-aged children which were broken down into five age categories ranging from 5 years to 19 years of age.

“We were simply amazed by the sheer artistic talent of these kids, and although winning entries were selected, the incredible creativity and passion of every participant shone through every brushstroke, pencil line and digital masterpiece”, commented director Grahame Salt, when presenting gifts to the winners. He went on to thanking teachers and parents for supporting their kids and helping them develop their talents. “Art and sport always need a lot of encouragement and that’s why we support this initiative”, he concluded. €1,250 worth of gifts were presented to 1st and runner up winners of each category as well as overall winners.
