YKC Artist Competitions

undefined undefined undefined

It's not just about dog competitions at the YKC

we love to celebrate our member's artistic talents

The YKC offer lots of ways for young artists to practice and enter competitions. We hold one main competition a year, the winner of which will receive prizes and will showcased at the YKC ring at Crufts.

We also have smaller competitions to keep members drawing/painting/watercolouring throughout the year, these include designing the artwork for the front cover of our magazine: "Fetch", designing flyers for dog campaigns and many more!

How do I get involved?

 

To enter our art competitions, check the sections below to find a competition that is running at the moment. Make sure you take a good read of the brief, as all our competitions have different themes - if your work is amazing, but doesn't fit the brief, it wont be chosen as the winner, even if it looks the best!

Once you have finished your artwork, send it off the the YKC offices - remember to put your name and address on the back so we can send it back. Also, when you send it in, make sure you send it in the correct size envelope (don't fold your art!!!) and also try and put a thick piece of cardboard in the envelope with it, so it cannot bend in the post (something like a piece of an "Amazon" box works great).

The Competitions

Artist of the Year

 

The artist of the year competition is announced during September of each year with the closing date for entries occurring just before Christmas.
