People First Credit Union is urging locals to get involved with this year’s Credit Union annual art competition. This year’s theme, ‘Imagine’, is influenced by the creative role art plays in Irish society and encourages participants to unlock their imagination and look at how art inspires us and our communities. Despite the current challenges, art has kept people from all walks of life connected and this year’s theme encourages participants to express this connectivity on paper or canvass.

Art has always been a huge part of Irish life and the Credit Union art competition, now in its 38th year, is dedicated to supporting and developing the arts in Irish society. Promoting and encouraging involvement in the arts across communities is an important message we want to spread. Art plays a critical role in enriching the lives of all people and is central to sustaining and
increasing connections.

The competition is open to children aged seven years and under right through to 18 years and over. There is also a category for those with physical or intellectual
challenges. Winners at the local level will go on to a regional level, and regional winners will progress to the national awards ceremony in February 2022.

Belinda Gyves from People First Credit Union said “We believe that this year’s theme will really inspire entrants and challenge them to unlock their imagination. The art competition is hugely important as it raises our community spirit and brings great excitement to us here at People First Credit Union when we see these amazing entries coming in. Whether it’s your first time to enter or you have entered before, we want to encourage everyone to participate and, as always, there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs!”.

The annual competition is part of the Irish League of Credit Unions’ (ILCU) commitment to supporting the artistic development of people of all ages and abilities in communities throughout Ireland.

Winners, runners-up, and merit award-winners at the local level will go on to represent the credit union at the regional level, and from there, winning artworks will go forward to the national level. National winners will receive cash prizes at an award ceremony to be held in February 2022.
