The Book of Kells Creative Competition is now closed for 2020. Only the successful winners will be contacted by email and there will be an award ceremony held in March 2021.
A certificate of participation can also be downloaded if you wish to share this with your class to celebrate their participation in the competition. We thank you for your entry, and hope you enjoyed partaking in the competition.
Prizes are awarded across 3 categories: primary schools, secondary schools and adult (18+). Prizes for art and writing are the same.
An expert panel of judges made up of Trinity academics and well know writers, illustrators and public figures will judge entries. They will be looking for modern works inspired by the colours in the Book of Kells.
All winners and runners up along with their school or club (if applicable) will be invited to an awards reception in Trinity College Dublin in November 2020 to accept their prizes. Those who are recognised with a merit certificate will also be invited.
