I have just launched my first competition for Artful Kids, in association with Raring to Go magazine. To take part I am inviting readers of the magazine, and of Artful Adventures, to submit a photo of their children's artwork, which will be turned into a unique, and personalised piece of contemporary canvas wall-art measuring at least 30x30cms and worth a minimum of £85.
This is just one of the options I currently offer at Artful Kids, but it is the most creatively satisfying and challenging for me, as the child's artwork is transformed into something new, while retaining the distinctive feel and integrity of the original. Every piece is unique, as the approach taken is very much dictated by what the original work inspires. You can see a few 'before and after' photos here which give you some idea of the wide variety of styles this can result in. A digital proof is always supplied before production goes ahead, to ensure that the customer is happy with the finished result.
To enter, you need to submit a photograph of your child's artwork, by posting it on your blog and adding your link below. Alternatively you can send your image as a Jpeg to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for all entries is 30th April, and the winning piece of artwork will be selected the following week.
Best of luck!
