Young Hackney Art Competition

We’re calling out to all young people in Hackney to get creative and help us make our very own Lockdown Archive!

This competition is all about imagination –  you don’t have to be a great artist to take part.

All you need to do is send us a photo of your art-work, this can be a drawing, painting, photograph, poem or model based on a theme we have selected.

This week the theme is: ‘Portraits’ – your art must be of/about someone in your household or someone you would like to meet after lockdown, this could include a friend, a favourite musician, athlete or inspirational person.

Entries must be submitted by Monday 18th May, please include your name age and contact number.

You can send it to us at or you can post it to us: Young Hackney Art Competition, HSC, 1 Hillman Street, London E8 3DY or drop it off as part of your daily exercise.

Prizes include amazing arts materials and £40 vouchers to spend online!

We will announce the winners and theme for each week via our newsletter and social media.
