Young Light – National Poster Competition from the Glucksman, UCC

Day 2: Competition Time!

The Glucksman Art museum in University College Cork is running a poster competition  for Cruinniu na nOg –

Young Light invites young people to design posters that celebrate their community and surroundings. As we head out of lockdown and begin to reacquaint ourselves with our local area, we can see things in a new light, colours become more vibrant, people and places can hold more significance.

Across the country young people will create artworks that celebrate their local area, capturing the colours and light of your part of the country or the people and places that make it unique.

The Glucksman are providing video tutorials and live online art sessions to help you with creations as well as tips and ideas on our social media channels.

Entries can be submitted as images by email along with a completed application form.

The Glucksman will share everyone’s creations in a dedicated online gallery, as well as awarding prizes for individuals and schools in different age categories.

The deadline for submissions is Thursday 25 June.

Live workshops (FREE) are running on the Glucksman’s Facebook page, visit
