Welcome to the 63rd Texaco Children's Art Competition ​


The closing date for this year's Competition has now passed and we would like to thank all of the young artists who entered and their parents or guardians, their teachers and their schools for their involvement and participation in the Competition. 

The entry level has been very strong this year and the quality of the artwork received is as good as ever.  Preliminary judging is due to take place later this week (w/c 13th March 2017) and final adjudication will take place at the end of this month.  The 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners in each category will then be announced to the media in mid-April. 

We are delighted to advise that the overall winner of this year's Competition will be invited by the International Foundation for Arts and Culture (IFAC) to exhibit their winning artwork at the 18th International High School Arts Festival which will take place in the National Arts Center in Tokyo, Japan in August.  The winning artist and their guardian will also be personally invited to attend an Awards Ceremony which will take place at the Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo on 9th August 2017.

If you have any queries regarding the Competition, please contact Bronagh Carron at 01 6258208 or email texacochildrensart@valero.com.
