​    Welcome to the

67th Texaco Children's Art Competition


We are now inviting young artists across the island of Ireland to participate in a national celebration of Children's Art as we mark 67 years of the Texaco Children's Art Competition.  Acknowledged as the longest running arts sponsorship in the history of arts sponsoring in Ireland, the Competition has been in existence since 1955 and has enjoyed an unbroken history of success.

The closing date for our next Competition is Wednesday, 24th March 2021 and we hope that we will continue to see outstanding creativity and talent reflected in the finest and widest choice of entries that we receive.    

For data protection compliance purposes, each entrant is required to complete an Application Form for each entry that they submit to the Competition.  Please download a School/Art School Application Form or a Home Application Form and securely attach it to each entry that you submit. Where artwork is submitted without an Application Form being fully completed, it will not progress to the preliminary judging stage of the Competition.  

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

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

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

We wish you every success. 

Good luck!
