BIC Young Artist Award

As a parent I know what it is like to have your child present their latest piece of artwork.  Where you at times look with a smile on your face trying to work out what it is.  Or look amazed at what a great piece of artwork they have done.

Did you know that the average child will produce more than 2000 pieces of arts and crafts for their parents before they turn 12. Which is why we often struggle as to where to keep their artwork or display it.  From the massive pile of drawings, greeting cards etc. Which research has shown that a parent will display their childs masterpieces for around 9 months.

The BIC KIDS Young Artist Award

This summer, the BIC KIDS Young Artist Award will be rewarding the creativity of children from across the country by offering them the opportunity to see their artwork graduate from the fridge door to billboards

Who can enter

The competition is open to all 5 to 11 year olds and all entrants should be encouraged to exercise their artistic flair and let their imaginations run wild.

Once your child has created their showstopper, parents can enter very easily by visiting BIC Kids and uploading the artwork before the deadline on August 4th.

The Prize

Once entries close on 4th August, BIC’s expert judging panel will select one finalist from each region, whose amazing artwork will be used on local billboards throughout the voting stage of this years BIC KIDS Young Artist Award.

    This is cool. I didn’t know that “the average child produces more than 2000 pieces of arts and crafts for their parents before they turn 12.” Amazing. But out of curiosity though, who counted? 😀

    Well, there’s a place for all that artwork and if it encourages kids to hone their artistic skills, so be it. There’s a budding Picasso in there somewhere.

    It’s so cool they are having an award to encourage children to get their inner artist out. I know my daughter would have loved this when she was younger.

    I am excited to see the winning artwork! My friend’s daughter has been winning awards for her artwork, but she’s 13 now and over the age limit for this contest. Anyway, I will be keeping an eye out for the winning entries. BIC did a good job initiating this campaign to spark the kids’ creativity!
