The prize aims to promote and reward the talent and creative spirit of children of school age, students at colleges and sixth forms and adults in the broader community. Artworks can be created in any media and entered by anyone with a passion or interest in the arts. It is an opportunity for all to celebrate their artistic skills.

An independent panel of three selectors will shortlist from submissions and, following a Prize giving event the chosen artworks will be exhibited to the public.
