Each year the Scott Creative Arts Foundation holds the SCAF Emerging Artist Award for up and coming artists from the Yorkshire region who are seeking to progress their career in art. This year our theme for the Award is CLIMATE, a subject that we hope will resonate in some way with everyone.

This year, for the first time, as so many children and young adults are having their normal lives turned upside down due to the Covid-19 restrictions that are in place to help keep us all safe and to keep our NHS functioning, we are delighted to announce two additional competitions; one for children aged 5 - 10 years and the second for those aged 11 - 16 (Anyone over 16 years of age was eligible to enter the main SCAF EAA). Ten finalists from each age group will have their work exhibited during the SCAF EAA exhibitions and win bundles of artists materials, however, this is not about winners and losers as we want to share the brilliant work of everyone who enters the competitions on our social media to brighten up everyone’s day. We will all be winners!

For details of how to enter these competitions and get creative, visit www.scafyoungartists.co.uk. Entries for our Young Artists Award must reach us by 31st August 2020.
