Glasgow Museums Annual Art Competition for children was first established in 1904 and continues to this day.

The 2018 competition is now open for children aged 3 – 18. Simply visit any one of Glasgow’s Museums to take part*. Visits are free of charge, and children always enjoy the opportunity to choose their own favourite thing to draw!

Drawing must be done in-situ, within one of our museums. They can be created using any drawing materials, size A2 or smaller. Paints (water-based) are permitted at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and the Riverside Museum only.

Once completed, hand the work in at the Enquiry Desk before you leave. Remember to include the child’s name, stage at school and a parent’s contact number on the back of their entry. Please write clearly. A blank label can be picked up from most museum enquiry desks.

All entries must be submitted by Thurs 31st May 2018. Judging will take place on the 1st June 2018.

School groups taking part must book in advance by calling 0141 276 9508. Unfortunately, due to the large number of entries we will be unable to return non-winning artworks.
