A public online vote to find Liverpool City Region’s best young artists opened on Saturday 28 March and continues until 28 April 2020.
This year 1257 pupils from 76 schools have entered the dot-art Schools competition and the shortlisted students from each school are now hoping for your votes to win a place in the eighth annual exhibition.
The online inter-school art contest gives both Year 5 and Year 9 pupils across the Liverpool City Region and its near neighbours the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents and have their work shown in a public exhibition.
At this stage school staff, friends, family and the general public can vote online for their favourite piece with the top art work from each school will be included in the final exhibition, details of which, due to the current coronavirus situation, will be announced as soon as possible.
dot-art Schools project manager Carolyn Murray said: “We aim to celebrate the creativity of young people in the Liverpool City Region to nurture the next generation of rising stars. It’s also a fantastic chance for pupils to showcase their skills and artwork to their parents, family and the wider community.
“At this uniquely challenging time for everyone, it is uplifting to be able to share and enjoy children and young people’s creative efforts.
“Browsing through the hundreds of entries online to choose and vote for your favourite artwork is an ideal activity to do at home with your family.”
