I am messaging this community page as we have officially launched this year’s National Fossil Art Contest and I’m excited to share info about it with you. Last year’s contest was hugely popular and we hope to have lots of exciting entries again this year. The theme of the contest is “Irish Fossils ALIVE”.
We are inviting young artists to create a unique art piece inspired by the rich fossil heritage on the island of Ireland and have prepared a list of some of the most famous Irish fossils on our website for inspiration. Entrants do not need any prior knowledge of fossils to enter, they can simply review our website for inspiration and let their imaginations run wild!
Prizes will be awarded in four age categories:
