All you have to do is IMAGINE!

We are delighted to announce the 2021 Credit Union Art Competition. You can download an entry form here.

Now in it’s 38th year, the Credit Union Art Competition strives to encourage artists throughout Ireland through self-expression, creativity and imagination.

WHAT’S THE THEME?

This year’s theme “Imagine”, encourages people to explore their thoughts, hopes and dreams, and portray them on paper or canvass.

To quote Albert Einstein, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” Imagination is a powerful tool which helps people escape from reality. Imagination can also be the start of a brilliant idea which could change the world.

This year’s competition encourages participants to use their imagination to explore the amazing world which exists inside our thoughts. Using their imagination to escape from the everyday worries and stresses of life, and to use art and imagination hand in hand to create a masterpiece, entrants to this year’s competition will all bring something exciting and creative to the competition.
