The Bermuda National Trust [BNT] and Sompo International are inviting students to explore ‘Bermuda roots’ through art.
A spokesperson said, “The Bermuda National Trust is pleased to announce the launch of its second Student Art Competition, sponsored by Sompo International.”
Karen Border, Executive Director, said, “We are delighted to invite Bermuda’s young people to use their artistic talents to explore the theme Bermuda Roots, whether that’s aspects of the island’s natural heritage, its cultural heritage or their own local connections.
“Last year we were amazed at the quality of artwork submitted and we are excited to see what this year’s theme inspires.”
The spokesperson said, “Entries can be in the form of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, collage, multi-media and digital art [excluding video]. The competition is divided into two age groups: 9 to 12 years old, and 13 to 18 years old, with cash prizes for the top three entries in each category chosen by a panel of independent judges.
“Entries must be delivered to the Bermuda National Trust office, Waterville, 2 Pomander Road by 5pm on Friday 28 October 2022. Entry forms and information on prizes and competition rules can be found at www.bnt.bm.
“The winners will be contacted on Friday 4 November and invited to an awards ceremony at BNT’s office, Waterville, on Thursday 10 November. The artwork will be exhibited in the reception of SOMPO International’s offices from 14 to 25 November and will also be featured on the Bermuda National Trust’s website.”
