Bristol in Bloom – Painting competition for young artists

Young artists in Bristol are being invited to get out their brightest crayons and colourful paint boxes and have a go at creating an amazing imaginative picture for the 2012 Bristol Bloom painting competition.

“Budding artists have just four weeks to submit their entry,” says Monica Whyte of the Bristol in Bloom Association. “Each year we receive hundreds of entries from local children and the standard of entries is always very high. There are lots of talented children and young people in Bristol, so I hope over the Easter holidays, they’ll get creative and enter our competition.

“And I’d like to thank Guy Salmon Land Rover Bristol who have sponsored this year’s painting competition.”

The themes for 2012 are:

  • The Queen in her Jubilee Garden
  • An imaginary flower for the Jubilee
  • A Flower for the Olympics

There are three age groups: up to six years olds, seven to 11 years old and 12 to 16 years. Artwork must be an unaided composition and no more than A3 size.

There are some great prizes, with the winning entry in each category being put on display at the Garden for Life Show in Broadmead from 11th to 12th May 2012. The winning entries will also be forwarded onto the Regional Britain in Bloom Competition.

Entries need to include the artist’s name, age, school and contact details on the back of the painting.

The closing date for entries is Friday, 4th May 2012. Completed entries should be posted to, 161 East Gomeldon Road, Salisbury, SP4 6NB.
