Returning Your Artwork

Return of Art Schedule

Due to the large number of entries submitted to the Competition and the administrative constraints that ensue, we are unable to return all of the artworks that we receive. The following conditions are therefore strictly applied to all entries and in line with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679:


Category A

1st, 2nd, 3rd Prize Winners                     NON RETURNABLE
15 Special Merit Winners                        RETURNABLE, SPRING 2021
Remaining Entries                                   RETURNABLE TO SCHOOLS, MAY 2020

Category B, C, D, E, F, G

1st, 2nd, 3rd Prize Winners                     NON RETURNABLE
15 Special Merit Winners                        RETURNABLE, SPRING 2021
Remaining Entries                                   NON RETURNABLE

Please note:

The first, second & third prize winning paintings in each category are not returned as they become a permanent feature of The Texaco Children's Art Competition Collection.

Due to the large number of entries received each year, we will endeavour, but are unfortunately unable to guarantee, the safe return of artwork which is noted above as 'returnable' (i.e. special merit winners in all categories and non-winning entries in Category A).  

We recommend that all artists take a copy or photograph of their artwork before submitting it to the Competition.
