Guernsey Arts has launched its Island Games postcard competition for children, part of a wider programme of cultural engagement running alongside the summer sporting event in partnership with the Games’ Committee.
Those from all participating jurisdictions under the age of 14 are asked to design a image based on islands. It could include a place that they love, a unique view or animal, a monument, or an important individual.
The favourites from each island will be printed as postcards for participants of the Games to send home.
This competition is running alongside others such as the open poetry competition, and the digital arts open. The hope is to leave a mark on all the participating islands, promoting a cultural legacy for generations.
Entries can be any media, from a painting to a collage of recycled material, and can be sent in via a high-quality photograph or scan.
Jade Kershaw, Community Arts Development Officer, said: “This is a fantastic addition to the Island Games Cultural Programme, opening the opportunity to be part of this inter Island project to young people from all participating islands. We’re really excited to see how young people perceive their own homes and gain an additional perspective to each Islands culture."
Entries close on 14 May 2023, and submissions can be made HERE.
