Congratulations to the winners of the iArt 2021 competition

Our iArt 2021 competition received 168 entries, more than ever before, with entries ranging from pets to wild animals, landscapes and portraits as pupils embraced techniques from sculpting to impressionist art. Schools encouraged pupils to use creativity as an outlet for emotion when other extra-curricular activities were impossible due to restrictions.

Christopher King, chief executive officer of IAPS, said: “Each year we are blown away by the quality of entries we receive, and this year was no exception. The artwork received opened our eyes to the student’s experiences over the past year and it was truly inspirational.

“The competition is a brilliant way to recognise the creativity and innovation our students have, and to emphasise the value that we place on these skills. My warmest congratulations and huge thanks to every student that participated.”

The competition has been running since 2013 and is renowned for the high standard of its entries from pupils aged 6 to 13 from across the world’s leading prep schools, with 1,084 pupils taking place since it launched. Established and run by the Independent Association of Prep Schools, and judged by its Chief Executive Christopher King, the initiative aims to showcase the innovative and inspiring artwork pupils in member schools produce. The criteria are skill, creativity and whether the pieces ‘stand out’ to the judges.
