The Credit Union Art Competition 2022 is finally here! 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 of the beauty and wonder of the World and portray them on paper or canvas.
At the present time, the Credit Union Art Competition is now in its 39th year working towards supporting and developing the arts in Irish society. Furthermore, the competition is free to enter and there are no age limits. It is open to children aged seven years and under right through to 18 years and over. The competition is divided into several age categories as well as an additional needs category.
