Thousands of children enter the competition every year, collaborating to create some incredible and inspiring work! They paint and draw and sculpt and write amazing poems. You could be part of it too! Talk to your teachers or your parents or art group leader and suggest they get involved. It's a great way to discover more about the natural world and to support endangered wildlife.
The annual DSWF Global Canvas Art and Poetry Competition is part of David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s Art for Survival programme and was established in 2004 to encourage young people to express their concern for the environment through art and poetry.
Each year we look for imaginative group entries from children aged 16 years and under to use art, poetry, sculpture and words to create a mini-exhibition to reflect the year’s theme; in 2017 it's 'Our Precious Planet', particularly thinking about our amazing wildlife! See the fabulous 2017 event round-up in our news section.
Entry opens from September to early February, so, if you've missed this year's submission why not get your thinking caps on for 2018! The theme will be announced later in the year.
