Creative Arts competition unveiled as part of Council’s centenary programme

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Good Relations team is asking the public to share their creativity and love for the area as part of an art competition to mark the Centenary of Northern Ireland.

The NI100 project will showcase what residents are most proud of in the Causeway Coast and Glens area over the last 100 years.

Whether a place, person, historical event, or just simply something within the area that means a lot to you, the project is asking people to get creative in any way you like. Entries can be submitted as a drawing, painting, poem, creative writing or any other arts or craft piece.

Welcoming the project, Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Alderman Mark Fielding, said: “With stunning landscapes and natural beauty, a rich history and culture, and a wealth of famous figures from the past, we are privileged to live in such a special place.

“This project is a wonderfully creative way to celebrate the people and places that make the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough unique and I am calling on everyone’s help to showcase our shared love for the incredible place we call home.”

There will be 4 prize categories:

·         Drawing / painting

·         Poem / written piece

·         Most creative

·         Original

Winners will receive a Causeway Coast and Glens Gift Card that can be used in over 200 local independent businesses across the Borough.

To take part in the project simply take a photo of your entry, if it’s not already digital or electronic, and submit via email to: good.relations@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk.

The deadline is Friday 5th March 2021 at 12 noon. You will receive a confirmation email when we receive your submission.
