Credit Union to launch Art Competition
BALTINGLASS Credit Union is set to launch its 2013 Credit Union Art Competition
All budding local artists are invited to submit entries for this year's credit union national art competition which has been launched and illustrating the theme 'Gotta Lotta Colour.'
Now in its 30th year, the competition attracts up to 50,000 entries through 300 credit unions nationwide and caters for all ages, with categories ranging from 7 to over 18 years. There is also a Special Category for those with physical or intellectual disabilities.
Baltinglass Credit Union is inviting anybody with an interest in art to enter the local competition. Entry forms are available from the credit union offices. Closing date for entry is Friday October 18.
First prize winners go on to represent the credit union at regional level (Chapter 7) and if successful, then national level. Local winners will receive their prizes at a prize giving ceremony and their artwork will be displayed as part of an exhibition in the office.
Following on from the great success of last year's competition Baltinglass CU want to encourage and reward self-expression, creativity and imagination amongst all artists young and old throughout the community, so the message is clear 'let's go and get creative.'
