Linkage ArtBeat Competition launched

Posted: 30/10/2017

We are delighted to announce the 2017 Linkage ArtBeat competition, our annual art and photography event.

The competition is open to young people with learning difficulties and disabilities, aged between 11 and 19 years old.  It aims to inspire and celebrate creativity among young people in mainstream and special schools as well as students at Linkage college and clients of our Adult Skills day service.

There are three categories, Ages 11-16, Ages 17-19, and Ages 20-25, with fantastic cash prizes up for grabs in each category:

1st Prize = £100         2nd Prize = £75           3rd Prize = £50

The theme this year’s competition is the Linkage Values of:

  • Independence
  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Teamwork.

It is completely up to the artist whether they choose to incorporate one of the values or all four of them. We are excited to see what entrants come up with and how they interpret the values.

Entries can be in any medium: pencil, crayon, ink, pastels, chalk, watercolours, acrylic, oils or photography. The only rule really is that entries must not be bigger than A3.

You can see some examples of last year’s entries on our Facebook page. Click here.

The closing date is Wednesday 20th December and winners will be invited to an awards ceremony at our brand-new Boultham Park campus in Lincoln in January.

If you know anyone who might be interested in entering make sure you pass this on.
