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 from the 22nd-30th June, at Liverpool School of Art and Design, Duckinfield Street, Liverpool, L3 5RD
On Thursday 21st 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, Tangle Teezer hairbrushes 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 one exceptional Year 9 student will have the opportunity to become part of dot-art's Artist Membership scheme for 12 months and display their work alongside professional artists. Finally the winning school in both Primary and Secondary categories will receive £250 of Cass Art vouchers.
NEW FOR 2018: The Year 9 Overall Winners and two Runners Up will receive a scholarship to Liverpool John Moores University, giving the student £1000 per year for 3 years towards course fees should they choose to study at the Arts Faculty
