All Ireland Credit Union Art Competition

On Sunday 17th February, family, friends and staff representing credit unions from all over Ireland will assemble at the Gresham Hotel for the awards ceremony and exhibition for the All Ireland Credit Union Art Competition.

The competition is now in its 28th year and attracts over 30,000 entries annually through over 487 credit unions across the island of Ireland. The thousands of hopefuls from around the country worked hard on their submissions throughout the winter months and the finalists were chosen from an incredible number and standard of entries. The artists, who ranged in ages from 6 to 21 were asked to portray the theme ‘Celebrate Community Colour’. 

The event, favoured by budding artists is one of the many events and initiatives run by the ILCU to highlight that community spirit remains alive and strong in parishes, villages and towns around the country, which some believe has been abandoned through the Celtic Tiger era.

We look forward to a fun filled day on Sunday and extend a huge congratulations in advance to all of the winners and those who receive prizes on the day.

The judges for this year’s art competition were: Kevin Largey, Artist, John Walsh, Creative Director, FOCUS Advertising Agency, and artist Ursula Retzlaff O’Connell and Mandy Johnson, Head of Communications at ILCU.
