in News by

FOLLOWING the huge success of our virtual talent show, The Clare Echo is delighted to announce our exclusive art competition in association with Toymaster Ennis and Wonder Photo Shop Ennis Fujifilm .

We already know the county is bursting with talent, so now we want to see your arty side.

The theme of this competition is “Up the Banner”. We want you to show your love for the best county in Ireland.

It can be a picture of anything or anyone, as long as it has some connection to Clare. You can even send us a portrait of your nan or your pet dog if they live in the Banner county.

You can use any medium you like whether its pencils, paints, crayons, pastels, wool weaving, wood carving, charcoal or chalk…anything goes!

Toymaster Ennis has provided an amazing prize for our primary school category, with a €75 voucher up for grabs.

Wonder Photo Shop Ennis Fujifilm will print the secondary school category winner on a canvas to hang on your wall at home, an unbelievable prize also worth €75.

For those just starting out on their primary or secondary school journeys, fear not. We will take age into account when judging the entries, so younger kids have just as much chance of winning as the older ones.

The Clare Echo is excited to reveal that Ennis artist Tomás O’Maoldomhnaigh has come on board as an expert judge.

Tomás has been a professional portrait and landscape artist for many years. His works can be found all over Ireland and he exhibits regularly in the Mid West.

This is an Instagram ONLY competition, so to enter all you have to do is FOLLOW our Instagram page @theclareecho and SHARE your art on your (or your parent/guardian’s) Instagram page using the hashtag #clareechoartcomp.

The closing date is Friday, April 17 so get creating and get sharing!
