Global Canvas children’s art competition is an annual art contest encouraging collaboration and creativity to display thought and concern for our planet’s environment and the incredible wildlife that inhabits it. Each year, the competition receives incredible and insightful creative entries from all over the world, with an amazing array of interpretations of the year’s theme. We would love children to think about the positive impacts their actions can have in helping to heal our planet and to show this in a fantastic display of art. Global Canvas is a worldwide competition with participating groups entering from Russia, Nigeria, China and beyond.


This competition is open to groups of children aged 16 and under. An entering group can be a group of friends, an art club, a class, a year group or an entire school.

How to apply
