The entry may be a painting, collage, sculpture or other work of art that uses recycled materials in an imaginative way.
Objects must be clearly labelled with a name and title and a short paragraph about the recycled materials used.
The aim is to show how recycled, often ordinary objects that are usually thrown away can be used to create beautiful, powerful even controversial works of art. N.B. We have negotiated some 'exhibition spots' for large works such as tapestries or sculptures.
There are TWO categories: One for Secondary schools, the other for Primary Schools. Entries may be made by individuals or groups

Can you mix words and images in a way that stops someone in their tracks and makes them think and, even better, want to do something positive to help? Then enter this competition.
