Get involved in the 2020 competition!

In its 17th year, this competition has attracted over 340,000 participants (averaging 20,000 per year!) since 2004, with 2,000 entries being sent in to NATRE each year for judging. Hundreds of UK schools get involved, and we get entries coming from as far a-field as Hong Kong and Australia, Thailand and Bahrain.

The annual competition starts at the beginning of every school year and runs through to 31 July, in order to enable teachers to incorporate the art competition into their RE lessons. Many schools have an ‘Spirited Arts’ unit of work, or a special learning RE/arts week.

Judging by RE Today Advisers and students, takes place in August and winners are announced in the new academic year.
