Youth Open Art competition

This annual competition is an amazing opportunity for young people in St Helens Borough to showcase their artistic talents through a collective exhibition in a professional gallery. 

Across St Helens Borough, we understand the value of arts and culture, and so we aim to provide all children and young people with as many opportunities as possible to develop, share and celebrate their creative skills.

Run by our Arts Service, Cultured and The World of Glass, the competition is open to anyone aged up to and including 16 years old who lives or studies in St Helens.

Entries are accepted from a wide range of media including paintings, sculptures, mixed media, photography and more, with the prizes categorised by age groups from Nursery right through to Key Stage 4.

We'll have more details on the 2022 competition soon.
