Brain Art Competition

Brain Art Competition

5 Jan 2023

Bristol Neuroscience Festival is back this year – and as part of the Festival the fab lot at the University of Bristol have relaunched their popular Brain Art Competition.

The competition has a category for primary school entries (KS1 & KS2) – with prizes for winners (£100) and runners up (£50) – with the artwork shortlisted going on display in the Royal West of England Academy’s gallery for public viewing.

What to draw/make?

The judges will be looking for artwork that is broadly brain-related & as the topic for British Science week this year is “Connections”, they’ll be hoping to see work inspired by this theme.

Entrants can use a range of materials and techniques from: drawing (e.g. pencil, pen, crayon, pastel, etc.), painting, printmaking, collage, textile or photography. 2D artwork must be A4 in size. With 3D artwork no larger than 400mm in height, width or depth.

Deadline for receipt of entries is 13th February 2023. Any entries received after this date will not be considered.

There is a small amount of funding to provide a few school art classes and a visit from a neuroscientist to help them develop their ideas.
