The Credit Union Art Competition is one of the most successful annual promotions undertaken by the Credit Union Movement. The competition is about encouraging and rewarding self expression, creativity and imagination among young artists throughout Ireland. Competition entrants are free to express their creativity using a wide variety of media. The competition requires entrants to draw or paint posters on a specific theme each year and can use a wide range of colouring / painting tools. There are two categories, general and special. General splits into five age groups, while the special category encourages participants with a physical or intellectual disability to submit entries in free expression without the restriction of the competition’s official theme, if they so wish. Registration for the art competition usually takes place in October of each year. At Heritage Credit Union we encourage all schools in our common bond to take part in this wonderful competition.
