Beaumaris Rotary Young Artists’ Dinosaur Competition

Want to enter the Beaumaris Rotary Children’s Artwork Competition?  Here’s what to do.

Paints, colours, modelling clay

Kids: get your paint brushes, colouring pencils, finger paints and modelling clay.  Let your imagination run wild.  We want to see your interpretations of Bayside’s prehistoric creatures.   Or dinosaurs from a more distant age, if you prefer! Big and even bigger prehistoric creatures!  The bigger the teeth, claws or beak, the more scary!  

The competition is open to all children (under 18’s) living in the Bayside postcode area.

There are four age categories:

  1. Ages up to 5
  2. Ages 5 – 10
  3. Ages 11 – 15
  4. Ages 16 – Under 18

How to Enter

Mum/Dad/Guardian: post a photo of your child’s artwork on the Bayside Community Hub or the Beaumaris Rotary Facebook page.  You can add it to the Comments section below the original Competition post or any subsequent Competition reminders.  Or simply email to:

Make sure you provide us with details of your child’s name, age and school, so we can allocate into the right age category for prizes.
