Welcome to the 70th Texaco Children's Art Competition 

​As we mark the 70th anniversary of the Texaco Children's Art Competition, we are delighted to invite young artists across the island of Ireland to participate in a national celebration of Children's Art with us. 

The closing date for entry is Wednesday, 28th February 2024, and we hope that we will continue to see the outstanding creativity and talent that is reflected in the finest and widest choice of entries that we normally receive, in this special anniversary year. 

To submit an entry to the Competition, please refer to the 'How To Enter' section above.​

In line with General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR), which is an EU law that covers data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and European Economic Area, each entrant is required to complete an Application Form for each entry that they submit to the Competition.  A maximum of two entries is permitted per individual artist.

Please download a School/Art School Application Form or a Home Appl​ication Form and securely attach it to each entry that you submit.    Where artwork is submitted without an Application Form being fully completed, it cannot progress to the preliminary judging stage of the Competition. 

Source imagery must also be noted as failure to do so may result in disqualification.

    If you have any queries regarding the information above, please email Bronagh Carron at texacochildrensart@valero.com

We wish you every success.

Good luck!
