Launching 8 February at our second Pig Club Tasting Menu and closing 28 March, the theme of our inaugural art competition is ‘Animals on the Farm’. Run by Jubilee, an agricultural and environmental organisation, Jubilee Farm is home to a wide variety of domestic and wild animals, from pigs to poultry and from otters to owls. Not only do we practice agroecological farming that promotes the highest welfare standards for our free range farm animals, but also farm in a way that encourages and leaves space for wildlife. As a result, Jubilee Farm is bursting at the seams with animals of all species, shapes and sizes and we encourage to reflect that in your artwork!
We have three categories in our art competition: open, primary school age (<11) and secondary school (12-18). Any medium can be used. To enter, please post or deliver your artwork to Jubilee Farm by 16:00 on Saturday 28th March.
We have a great range of prizes to be won (full list at bottom of page), including our wonderful free range sausages, original artwork by Pen Jones, our artist-in-residence, and poetry books by our poet-in-residence, Bill McKnight. Each of the three winners in each category will be invited to attend and display their artwork at our Art Workshop, to be held at Jubilee Farm on Saturday 25 April 11 – 1. Tickets at £5 per person can be paid in cash on the day.
The judges for our competition are our very own artist-in-residence Pen Jones, as well as her husband Merve, also an accomplished artist.
Please read our competition rules below before submitting your entry. Email mail [@] jubilee.coop or ring Jonny on 07858098479 if you have any questions or queries. Have fun creating your animal artwork!
