This important part of the annual Fortingall Art exhibition invites local schools, and individuals within the age groups given to produce a CD size piece of art for inclusion in the competition. Each year the competition is very popular and attracts around 400 entries. The standard is very high and provides a challenging task for the panel of judges to decide the winners from many inspiring pieces of work.

The 2017 winners for each subject group (1st, 2nd & 3rd), together with those who have been awarded ‘Highly Commended’, are displayed below. A further award is given to the overall winner, decided by the 2017 artists who view the winners for all categories and decide which they like best.

Finally, a big thank you to all the teachers who helped to make this competition so successful.
