The UK Children's Fine Art Competition
Judging The 2011 / 2012 UK Children's Fine Art Competition (UKCFAC) took place at Staffordshire University. Over 600 high quality works of art were assessed by nationally recognised judges Frederick Phillips, Peter Smith, Rob Pointon, Julie Winwood, Julie Newbold, Susan Law-Webb and Harry Davies. The children had clearly gone to great lengths to ensure that it was a thoroughly enjoyable but a very difficult task. Prizes were awarded across counties at Primary, Secondary and Special school level, culminating in a national award for each level and an award for best overall school contribution. Children had entered artworks appropriate to the theme: "The Theatre, The Puppet, The Fairytale".
Results and images of the winning pieces can be seen on this site.
The UKCFAC submits entries to the annual International Children's Exhibition of Fine Arts (ICEFA) - one of the largest fine art competitions for children in the world. Check it out.
