Bernews: “Bermuda: People & Parishes” Art Competition

The Bermuda National Trust [BNT] and Sompo International have launched the 3rd annual Student Art Competition, with a theme of “Bermuda: People and Parishes”.

“We are very pleased to invite Bermuda’s young people to use their artistic talents to explore this year’s theme, “Bermuda: People and Parishes”. Whether students focus on the unique aspects of a parishes natural or cultural heritage, or their own local connections,” said Anna Stevenson, Heritage Education Coordinator.

“We welcome all interpretations. The last two years we have been amazed by the students’ creativity, the quality of artwork submitted, and we can’t wait to see what this year’s theme inspires. The timing of the competition is perfect as students can start to explore media and themes during the long summer break.”

A spokesperson said, “Entries can be in the form of drawing, painting, sculpture, multimedia, collage, photography, and digital art . The competition is divided into two age groups: 9 to 12 years old, and 13 to 18 years old, with cash prizes for the top three entries in each category chosen by a panel of independent judges. Entries must be delivered to the Bermuda National Trust office, Waterville, 2 Pomander Road by 5pm on Friday 2nd November 2023. Entry forms and information on prizes and competition rules can be found here.

“The winners will be contacted on Friday 10 November and invited to an awards ceremony at BNT’s office, Waterville, on Thursday 16 November 2023. The artwork will be exhibited in the reception of SOMPO International’s offices shortly afterwards and will also be featured on the Bermuda National Trust’s website.
