Third annual Student Art Competition being held
Bermuda’s people and parishes are the theme of this year’s Student Art Competition.
The Bermuda National Trust has partnered with Sompo International to hold the third annual event.
Anna Stevenson, heritage education co-ordinator for the BNT, said: “We are very pleased to invite Bermuda’s young people to use their artistic talents to explore this year’s theme, Bermuda: People and Parishes.
“Whether students focus on the unique aspects of a parish’s natural or cultural heritage, or their own local connections, we welcome all interpretations.
“Over the last two years we have been amazed by the students’ creativity and the quality of artwork submitted, and we can’t wait to see what this year’s theme inspires.
“The timing of the competition is perfect as students can start to explore media and themes during the long summer break.”
Entries can be in the form of a drawing, painting, sculpture, multimedia, collage, photography and digital art. Video is excluded.
The competition is divided into two age groups — 9 to 12 years old and 13 to 18 years old — with cash prizes for the top three entries in each category chosen by a panel of independent judges.
Entries must be delivered to the Bermuda National Trust office, Waterville, 2 Pomander Road by 5pm on November 2.
Entry forms and information on prizes and competition rules can be found at bnt.bm/event/student-art-competition-2023.
The winners will be contacted on November 10 and invited to an awards ceremony at the BNT’s office, Waterville, on November 16.
The artwork will be exhibited in the reception of insurance and reinsurance firm Sompo International’s offices and will also be featured on the BNT’s website.
