The Theme

The theme of this year’s competition is 'This Is Inspiration’.

Jury member Amanda Coogan says: "To inspire means literally 'to breathe life into' I’m really looking forward to seeing what it is that inspires you. What ideas have you chosen to breathe life into? And how have you chosen to do it? The brief is wide open so we’re really looking forward to seeing how you respond to it!"

A prize fund of more than €10,000 will be awarded across the different categories for further education and art related vouchers.
