Calendar Competition

CEIST are delighted to announce their new Calendar of Hope Art Competition 2021.  Open to all senior cycle students within our CEIST community the theme for this year is “Hope”.

After a most difficult year with the global pandemic affecting every individual in every nation,  never has there been a greater need for Hope.  This opportunity  encourages entrants to think past the current situation and imagine what 2021 will bring.

CEIST are currently focusing on building community.  Shared expressions of Hope within our community will be greatly needed as we embrace the new year and so we invite entrants to reflect on our learning from the past year.  Art enriches the lives of everyone and is central to sustaining and  increasing connections.

Calendar Competition 2021 Entry Form is available here and we look forward to receiving and viewing lots of artistic creations.
