Celebrating 15 years of Arts Award, Voice magazine are running a social media competition to showcase the creative talents of young people and highlight the diversity of artistic work embraced by Arts Award.
Throughout September Arts Award Voice will be running a competition to find the most vibrant, impressive, creative responses to the theme of #LoveArtsAward15. They’re calling on Arts Award advisers to support young people to make something spectacular to share their love of art. They want to showcase the huge diversity of arts, culture and media that Arts Award supports - the more inventive the creation, the better.
The resulting competition runs in September, but Arts Award participants can get busy creating throughout the summer, ready to share their art work on social media later. Below is the full brief, for you to share with your groups.

Competition brief for young people
Step one: Create your art
Tell us in any art form why you love art! What does it mean to you? How does it make you feel? What does it add to your life? You could create a painting, write a monologue, make a short film, build a sculpture, create an animation, choreograph a dance, write a poem, or anything that takes your fancy. As long as it's creative and it shows your passion, go for it!
Step two: Share your art in a 15 second snippet
Showcase your love of art in 15 seconds! To enter the competition we want to see a 15-second snippet of your creative response shared with Voice mags Twitter or Instagram. This could be a video or audio recording, and it doesn't have to be fancy. You can record on a phone, computer, straight into Instagram, whatever it takes to share your art publicly.
