Competitions

Creative Earth is an art competition for people aged 16 and under from across the UK, run by the UN COP26 Climate Change Conference in collaboration with WWF.

As part of the Together for Our Planet campaign, they’re inviting young people to get creative and show global leaders the world they want to live in.

Whether it’s green forests and garden cities, clear skies and wind turbines or oceans teeming with life – paint, draw or design a piece of art that shows how you’d like our planet to look in the future.

Age UK West Cumbria has teamed up with PBP to launch a new art competition, putting older people in the spotlight.

We can all learn from people who are older than us! They have had more lived years of experience and know things about the past that we haven’t had the chance to witness. But just as they can teach us things, we can share our skills and knowledge with them too.

With more and more people feeling lonely and isolated, there has never been a better time to reach out and connect to an older person in your life, showing them that you care. Together we can make sure that everyone feels valued – no matter what their age!

We would like you to draw a picture of an older person in your life – and tell us why they are so special to you.

Every drawing that we receive will be used somewhere in an Age UK West Cumbria campaign – either on our website, on our social media or on a piece of print like a leaflet.

In addition, we will select our favourite 5 portraits to made into life size versions which will be displayed in one of our Age UK West Cumbria shop locations.

A big thanks to Derwent Pencils who have donated prizes.

There will be five categories plus the overall winner will also win a £100 Amazon voucher for their school.

Overall winner – all years
