The Spencil Art Prize is a showcase of your kids' artistic flair, encouraging children to explore their imaginations and express themselves through the incredible world of art. We're inviting little artists up to 13 years of age to share their artworks with the world, enter the 2024 kids art competition and be in with a chance of winning with over $2,000 worth of prizes! Imagine that!

Tell the kids to bring out the paint-brushes, don their art smocks and get their gorgeous imaginations revved up, because we need their creative masterpieces!

Entries close 7th May 2024 and our mini piccaso winners will be announced on the 7th June 2024! 

Come and join us in a world of wonder as we celebrate kids' creative superhero abilities!

$2000+ worth of prizes!

By getting involved, your budding little Matisses and Picassos have the opportunity to win awesome prizes in their age category: 8 Years & Under and 9 to 13 Years.

There are two major prizes up for grabs, valued at over $400 each. Plus runner-up prizes for another 10 kids!

In addition to that, Spencil will choose a "Staff pick of the week" offering you even more of a chance to secure yourself some Spencil Goodies!
