Registration is now open for our 2017 competition.
Our Creative Arts Competition in Wales is an extremely useful way of encouraging young peoples’ interest in anti-racism and provides an opportunity for pupils to express their feelings about racism and showcase their work.
Last year was our 10th anniversary of the awards that saw 7,000 pupils of different ages taking part in the competition, with 300 final entries of anti-racism themed artwork being submitted to our judging day.
The Prize Giving Ceremony took place at the Marriott Hotel in Cardiff and all the lucky winners from across Wales attended a formal lunch and award ceremony. Prizes included kindles, Wales Football tickets, Amazon vouchers, trophies, a SRtRC goody bag and a framed certificate. Guests were also treated to some fantastic entertainment including a circus workshop and dance performance.
The overall winner was from a school in Wrexham who goes by the alias Smokezz. The judges felt that his creative writing skills and emotional lyrics highlighted the struggles that people suffering racism face each day.
There has been some additions to last year’s competition, allowing schools to submit up to 3 entries per category!
The competition is divided into 10 categories featuring artwork, creative writing and digital media amoungst others.
Please download the registration pack HERE and take the time to read the category briefs and ensure any artwork is submitted with an entry label by 10th March 2017.
