By the Seaside | Arts Competition

18 May 2021 10:00 - 07 June 2021 15:00

To support our summer exhibition By the Seaside, we are inviting members of the public to submit works to our annual Art Competition.

Usually open only to schoolchildren in Fife, we are opening up the competition this year to members of the public. We are also accepting written poetry or prose submissions too - so, whoever you are and however the sea inspires you, you can take part!

If you would like to submit an entry, please see the full details at the Art Competition webpage.

Submissions from the public will not be entered into the schools competition but will be considered for exhibtion, both onsite in the museum and online.

So, if the sea is your muse, please get creative and share the results with us!
