BIC® KIDS is running its Young Artist Awards for the second summer in a row to engage children in getting creative over the summer and before they return to school in September.
As a creative family we love to come together over a good colouring book and new crayons. I love to encourage the kids creative side and we often have days making and creating cards and gifts for family. With a competition to enter over the summer this will give us the perfect rainy day activity too!
Let me know if you enter!
More about the competition:
The innovative and ambitious crowdsourcing campaign rewards talented young artists by transforming their drawings into billboards. Operated in partnership with Mumsnet once again, the competition has been designed to support sales of BIC® KIDS’ drawing and colouring ranges, including the BIC® Kids Evolution®Ecolutions® Colouring Pencils, Kid Couleur® Felt Pens and Plastidecor® Crayons.
Open to all 5-11 year olds, the Young Artist Awards will run from 2nd July to 5th August. To enter, parents simply need to take a photo of their child’s masterpiece and upload it to the BIC® KIDS website before the deadline at 11:59 pm on Sunday 5th August. Entries will then be judged by an expert panel of creatives from the marketing, publishing and illustration industries, to establish regional winners, before a public vote will determine the national champion.
Each of the 13 regional winners will have their artwork plastered on local billboards and the national champion will then get to see their entry displayed nationwide.
Rebecca Huda, BIC® UK and Ireland’s Product Manager – Stationery, said: “We’re delighted to be returning with a new and improved BIC® KIDS Young Artist Award for 2018. Last year’s competition was a wonderful success and we were overwhelmed by the quality of the entrants.
“We can’t wait for this year’s imaginative entries to start pouring in ready to be displayed across the country, there’ll be some proud parents for sure!”
As well as the priceless opportunity to have their drawings published, the 13 deserving winners will receive a hamper full of BIC® KIDS drawing and colouring instruments. Specifically designed to help children to hone their artistic talent, the hampers will include an array of exciting stationery products including the BIC®Kids Evolution® Ecolutions® colouring pencils, Kid Couleur® felt pens and Plastidecor® crayons, to name just a few.
