CREDIT UNION ART COMPETITION

Posted by & filed under News.

Core 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 and this is an important message we want to spread.

The competition is free to enter. There are no age limits and it is open to 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 regional winners will progress to the national awards
ceremony in February 2023.

Michael Byrne, CEO of Core Credit Union said “The Credit Union Art Competition holds a special place in our community and we want to encourage anyone with an interest in art to get involved. We lookforward to seeing how entrants will interpret the theme ‘It’s a Wonderful World’.
Year after year we are blown away by the amazing entries that come into us and it is really wonderfulto see the creative talent within the community. We can’t wait to see all the amazing entries and ofcourse, there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs!”

Evan O’Farrell was one of our national winners last year!
