United Learning launches International Art Competition

January 2022

United Learning has launched its annual International Art Competition which gives young artists from schools across United Learning, including Barnsley Academy, the opportunity to see their artwork exhibited in Tokyo. 

We are excited to announce that three Barnsley Academy students have submitted pieces, which are now being put before audiences on social media (Facebook and Instagram).

Along with public voting the pieces will also be judged by United Learning’s art teachers and executive team, as well as a panel of professional artists.

The winner and three runners-up will be announced via social media on 17th March. These top four students will be given the opportunity to have their work displayed at Tokyo’s celebrated International High School Arts Festival whilst the winner, will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Japan to see their piece exhibited in person. 

We are eager to get the local community and school behind our students, who have created three unique and expressive pieces of work. 

Each piece of work is shown below and links to vote for them on Facebook and Instagram underneath the images. Please take a moment to vote for our talented Barnsley Academy students.
