The <i>IoS</i> Draw for Britain art competition

The Independent on Sunday is launching 'Draw for Britain', an art competition to get everyone across the country sketching, painting or sculpting. There are three age groups for children: up to the age of 7, 8-11, and 12-16, and a category for adults. You can do whatever you want: a portrait or self-portrait, a still life, an abstract drawing, or, indeed, anything else. And you can choose any theme – maybe your family, your school, your favourite place or your best ever day. The IoS will draw up a shortlist for each category, and then Anthony Browne, the Children's Laureate, will select the winners. Each winner will receive a fantastic prize, worth up to £250. And we will publish your picture in the IoS. Please send your entries to: Draw for Britain, Colin Wilson, Art Director, The Independent on Sunday, 2 Derry Street, London W8 5HF.
