University of Leeds, Art Competition for GCSE students: Discover ARTiculation

Do your students love art? Would they speak with passion about their favourite piece of art? If so we would love to hear from you.

University of Leeds are looking for GCSE students of any discipline who have a love of art or architecture to enter an exciting competition here at the University. All your students need to do is submit a 3-minute film of themselves talking about a piece of art or architecture of their choice. All film entries will be viewed by staff from the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies who will select the best to take part in our Experience Day final on campus in the summer. All schools that enter will be invited to attend the Experience Day and find out more about studying art and heritage at university, careers in the arts and of course to hear the finalists deliver their presentations!

It’s so easy to enter: students can even make their film at home or with a friend on a smartphone. This competition will also appeal to students who enjoy public speaking or debating, they don’t have study art to take part, so please feel free to forward this to your colleagues in other departments.

For further details please contact for a handbook and details of how to enter.
