Pickering-based group Mother Anti-frackers are launching a children’s drawing competition “My Childhood Ryedale”, which will run from 13th August – 13th September.

There are four age categories: Under 5, 6-11, 12-15 and 16-18. There will be three prizes per category, judged by a panel of local artists and esteemed dignitaries.

Entries *must* be on A4 sized paper.

On the back please put the child’s name, age, a contact phone number, what the creative piece is called, and the word ‘YES’ if you are happy for it to be used for publicity around the event.

Any medium can be used – paint, collage, charcoal, crayon, pencil, etc.

Please send entries to: My Childhood Ryedale Competition, Pickering Memorial Hall, Potter Hill YO18 8AA.

Winning entries will be contacted shortly afterwards, and the group are currently seeking premises for an exhibition of all the artworks. Watch this space!
