Competition details


We want to get people in Ireland talking about our biodiversity – the animals, plants, and bacteria that are found here. And that’s why we need you! We need your artwork – whether it’s a painting, collage, drawing, etching…we want you to somehow showcase Irish biodiversity.

We are calling on Ireland’s talented kids and teens (ages 5-18) to make artwork depicting Ireland’s biodiversity. A judging panel will select the top 10 artworks, which we will turn into postcards. We are hopeful that these postcards – sent both within Ireland and posted to destinations across the world – will raise awareness of the fantastic creatures and plants we’ve got here in Ireland.


Who can submit

Anyone living in Ireland who is between the age of 5 and 18 can submit an entry
