The Credit Union Art Competition caters for all ages ranging from 7 years & under to 18 years & over, across all corners of the island of Ireland. This competition requires entrants to draw or paint posters using pencil, charcoal, pen or ink, felt tip marker, crayon, pastel, water colours, gouache, acrylics, oils, poster colour or collage. Posters are required to be either A3 (420 x 297 mm) or A2 (594 x 420mm) and landscape orientation. Portrait orientation entries will be disqualified from adjudication. 


There are two categories represented in the Credit Union Art Competition. General & special. The special category encourages participants with physical or intellectual disability to submit entries in free expression without the restriction of the competition’s official theme if they wish. It also allows for group entries. All group entries will be judged together – no age categories apply.
