How does it work?• The young artists make a piece of visual art inspired by this year’s theme of Yorkshire. • Enter the competition by sending a photo of the finished piece and a complete application form to firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline: 30 May 2018 (at 23:59) • In early June a panel of judges will select 50 pieces to enter the Young Artists Collection. • Winners will be notified in early July and invited to attend an Art Market where their work will be on display to be purchased by local businesses. The artist gets 60% of the money from that sale and the rest is used to fund IVE’s charitable work providing creative opportunities for disadvantaged young people.
How much does it cost?Nothing. There is no entry fee for the young artist. Nothing for schools or arts organisations to pay.
Who is it for?Anyone aged 11-18 who can produce any kind of visual art. It’s not just a school’s thing, it’s open to any young person in the UK.
How will the panel pick the winners?The panel will be looking for work that demonstrates technical artistic skill (taking into account the age of the entrant), imagination, creativity and that responds to the theme of this year’s contest which is Yorkshire.

Ignite Imaginations a community organisation based in Sheffield has been delivering an Arts and Culture ambassadors programme across South Yorkshire.
With 17 creative partners, 7 schools and 59 ambassadors this programme aims to give young people a real insight into the career opportunities in the sector, build their creative and interpersonal skills and connect them to the world of work. The programme intends to inspire and galvanise the next generation of artists, producers, coordinators and CEO’s.
This year, Ambassadors are set to work through a Bronze Arts Award as part of the programme (Level 1 award on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF)) and visit local creative organisations across the county. From Site Gallery to Higher Rhythm, the creative sector is well represented and explored in this programme with overall facilitator Ignite Imaginations.
Ambassadors have enjoyed a rich and diverse range of experience including:
Curating part of a museum for the day
Visiting one of Sheffield’s iconic theatres for a behind-the-scenes insight into the workings of the theatre world and taking on the promotional challenge of how to engage more young people with theatre
Team building with Third Angel
Using art, craft and entertainment to engage with the elderly in a local residential home.
The Better Learners Better Workers programme is a step beyond the traditional model of one business connected to one school. It connects an employment sector, or whole series of employers, to a group of schools. This allows a range of employers to contribute and allows schools a wider link to employers in the local community.[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=243&v=2-GY60JlcUs[/embed]
