Junior Art Competition

Are you, or do you know, an artistic young person? The Art Marquee at Ham Fair showcases the best of our young local talent and creating an entry could be a great Half Term project.

The competition is open to any person up to the age of 16 who goes to school in Ham or lives in Ham or the surrounding neighbourhoods, e.g. Petersham, North Kingston, Richmond, Teddington OR Twickenham.

There are very few rules, it’s a chance to get really creative!

2019 rules for entry:

The art competition is now closed for 2019. Look out for details for 2020!

One piece of art per person in any medium of any subject, up to A4 size, able to be mounted on a display board. (If the art is on thin paper, please mount on a slightly larger piece of thin card which will have the added benefit of creating a frame.)

Name, age and contact telephone number on reverse. If you want to display your name and age on front on the piece, write it on the mount frame. You can remain anonymous if you prefer, but we will want to identify you if you win!

There will be a first, second and third prize winners in each age group, with first prize winners taking home a plate of homemade, decorated cupcakes.

Judging will be in five categories according to age; 6 and under, 7 – 8, 9 – 11, 12 – 14, and 15 – 16 years.

Prize winners will be invited to collect their prize from the Art Marquee on the day of the fair.


Details will be posted on here in early 2020.


If you want your photographs returned they can be collected from the Art Marquee at Ham Fair from 4pm, or from the address which will be given nearer the event.

We are unable to return entries by post and any entries that are not collected will be recycled.
