Children from across the UK are being invited to take part in the seventh annual Junior Painter of the Year Awards, organised by the Royal Academy and the charity Sightsavers.
The theme is “i:dream” and children are asked to paint what they dream about. This year, the organisers are aiming to make the competition more accessible by encouraging children to experiment with tactile painting.
There are three age categories: infants (ages four to seven), lower juniors (ages eight and nine) and upper juniors (ages ten and 11). The winning entries will be displayed in the illustrious surroundings of the Royal Academy of Arts in London.
