During the Autumn and Spring terms, each participating school produces and submits up to 25 pieces of student work; these will be displayed on the project website from late March. A panel of art experts then selects the top 3 artworks from each school. At this stage, staff, friends, family and the general public will be able to vote online for their favourite piece; the top art work from each school will be included in the final exhibition, which will take place at St Georges Hall in Liverpool from 16th June to the 1st July.
On Thursday 15th June there will be two Prize Giving events (primary and secondary) for invited guests, at which we will announce the overall winner and two runners up for each age group. These winners will receive a selection of prizes including tickets to the next exhibition at Tate Liverpool, vouchers for art materials from Rennies of Liverpool and others yet to be announced, plus certificates will be presented to all three shortlisted pupils from each partipating school by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool. In addition we will be announcing the "dot-art Scholarship" which gives one exceptional Year 9 student the opportunity to become part of dot-art's Artist Membership scheme for 12 months and display their work alongside professional artists.
Please see below for how the voting process works, and feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
