The Essence of a Leopard - Cape Leopard Trust’s Annual Inter-School Art Competition

The Essence of a Leopard - Cape Leopard Trust’s Annual Inter-School Art Competition
Published: 04 May 2017

We are excited to announce that we are now accepting entries for this year’s inter-school art competition! Our theme is "The Essence of a Leopard". We want to honour some of the unique leopard qualities that we teach children about on our camps and day trips, such as the role leopards play in maintaining a balanced ecosystem, as a way to develop a greater understanding of how vital nature is to our well-being. Winners will have the opportunity to experience the Cederberg and seeing their art in print! Each winner will also receive a copy of the 2018 calendar and a leopard presentation at their schools. Winning artworks will be put up for auction at a Cape Leopard Trust auction event towards the end of the year in 2017.

Entries must be received by 23 June 2017.

The competition is open to children and youth ages 10-18. Age categories for judging will be 10-13, 14-16 and 17-18. Each artwork must have a title and the name of the artist must be accompanied by an entry form. A maximum of two entries per individual will be accepted and 20 entries per school/organisation. Submissions are accepted via email to [email protected] with "Art Competition Entry" in the subject line or by post (if received by 23 June) to:

P.O. Box Box 31139
Cape Town
South Africa.
