First Choice Credit Union is delighted to announce that entries are now open for the 2022 Credit Union Art Competition.
The theme for this year’s Credit Union Art Competition is ‘It’s A Wonderful World’. This year’s theme gives participants the opportunity to present their own interpretation of the magic in the world and what must be done to keep it this way. The competition invites participants to create artworks that depict the theme and explore through their own unique lens the beauty and wonder of the World
The Credit Union Art Competition, now in its 39th year, is dedicated to supporting and developing the arts in Irish society. The credit union has always had a keen commitment in promoting and encouraging involvement in the arts across communities.
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 on to a regional level, and then to the National Final.
The annual competition is part of the Irish League of Credit Unions’ (ILCU) commitment to supporting the artistic development of people of all ages and abilities in communities throughout Ireland.
Winners, runners-up and merit award-winners at local level will go on to represent the credit union at regional level and from there, winning artworks will go forward to national level. Local winners will receive their prizes at a local level. National winners will be announced at an award ceremony to be held in early 2022.
