The UK Children's Fine Art Exhibition site is a unique ongoing opportunity for you to show off your artistic skills free to the rest of the world. Set up your account now and upload images of your paintings, sculptures and photography for everyone to see! And you don't have to be a UK citizen either, our site accepts submissions from across the globe!!
This site is great for progressive schools and colleges who want a free, national platform to show off the work they've been doing. And it's a great way of inspiring others to use techniques that you've found to be effective and successful.
Every year you can enter the UK Children's Fine Art Exhibition, a fantastic opportunity for you to produce your very best work to celebrate the Lidice Shall Live campaign, which led to the rebirth of the village of Lidice after it was obliterated by the Nazis in 1942. It is an excellent cross curricular exploration in History, Geography, Citizenship as well as Art. Your work may also be submitted, free of charge, to the International Children's Exhibition of Fine Arts, one the largest fine art competitions in the world!
Judging The 2011 / 2012 UK Children's Fine Art Exhibition (UKCFAE) 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. Outstanding contributions 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 UKCFAE submits many 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.
