Longstanding credit union art competition 2022 launched at Athlone Credit Union

Athlone Credit Union is delighted to announce that entries are now open for the 2022 Credit Union art competition.

The theme for this year’s Credit Union Art Competition is ‘It’s A Wonderful World’. This year’s theme gives participants the opportunity to present their own interpretation of the magic in the world and what must be done to keep it this way. The competition invites participants to create artworks that depict the theme and explore through their own unique lens the beauty and wonder of the world.

The Credit Union Art Competition, now in its 39th year, is dedicated to supporting and developing the arts in Irish society. The credit union has always had a keen commitment in promoting and encouraging involvement in the arts across communities and this is an important message we want to spread.

The competition is free to enter. There are no age limits and it is open to aged seven years and under right through to 18 years and over. There is also an additional needs category. Winners at local level will go on to a regional level, and regional winners will progress to the national awards ceremony in February 2023.

“The Credit Union Art Competition holds a special place in our community and we want to encourage anyone with an interest in art to get involved. We look forward to seeing how entrants will interpret the theme ‘It’s a Wonderful World’.

"Year after year we are blown away by the amazing entries that come into us and it is really wonderful to see the creative talent within the community. We can’t wait to see all the amazing entries and of course, there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs," Michael Evans, CEO of Athlone Credit Union, said.

Entry forms are available to download from the Athlone Credit Union website www.athlonecreditunion.ie or to collect from either of our offices in Irishtown or Monksland. The closing date to submit finished entries to Athlone Credit Union is Friday, October 14.
