Credit Union Art Competition 2021- Imagine

Cara Credit Union is delighted to announce that entries are now open for the 2021 Credit Union Art Competition.

Following the success of last year’s theme, we are once again asking entrants to tap into their imagination. This year’s theme “Imagine”, encourages people to explore their thoughts, hopes and dreams, and portray them on paper or canvas.

This year’s competition encourages participants to use their imagination to explore the amazing world which exists inside our thoughts. Using their imagination to escape from everyday worries and stresses of life, and to use art and imagination hand in hand to create a masterpiece, entrants to this year’s competition will all bring something exciting and creative to the competition.

The Credit Union Art Competition, now in its 38th year, is dedicated to supporting and developing the arts in Irish society. Art plays an important role in building community spirit and inspires everyone to the contribution that we can make to its development. Promoting and encouraging involvement in the arts across communities is an important message we want to spread.

The competition is free to enter and there are no age limits to the competition and it is open to children aged seven years and under right through to 18 years and over. There is also an additional needs category. Winners at local level will go onto a regional level, and regional winners will progress to the national awards ceremony in February 2022. Local winners will receive their prizes at a local level.

Entry forms are available to download by clicking below. The closing date to submit finished entries to Cara Credit Union is 15th October. Entries can be sent or dropped into any of our branches in Tralee, Killorglin, Castleisland, Ballyduff or Causeway.
