What’s The Entry and Submission Process This Year?

1. Pupils from S1 and S2 (the new S2 intake, not the end of year group) are invited to create a self-portrait which illustrates personal aspirations for future learning, development and career choices.
2. Each participating school should short-list 8 self-portraits.
3. Self-portraits must be titled and accompanied by a narrative of no more than 50 words which describes the career aspiration, reasons for the career choice and plans to get there! Without a narrative, the entry will be withdrawn.
4. We encourage entries in any media, but self-portraits submitted on paper must be A3 in size.
5. For the first time we'd like to offer pupils the opportunity to portray personality and ambition through symbolism if they wish, accepting still life and abstract pieces.

All entries will also be exhibited in our on-line gallery and the Aberdeen Tivoli Theatre.
