in partnership with  

The Secondary school Art Prize was open to pupils aged 11 to 18, who go to school in Essex or Greater London and like getting creative. 

The young people were asked to make an original artwork inspired by this year’s theme: Perspective. The work had to be be 2D and no bigger than an A3 piece of paper. The rest was up to them!


There is a £500 cash prize for the winner in each age category and £1,000 for the winner’s school art department*.  Plus more prizes for the runners up. 


Find out which 9 celebrities judged the artwork. 


We have a page of useful resources including technical tips, inspiring artists and lots more. 


Certificates are now online and ready to download for all pupils who took part!
