'GOING TO THE MATCH' ART COMPETITION

4 May 2022

Enter by 20 May deadline

As part of the ‘Suffolk – The Platinum Years’ exhibition at this year’s Suffolk Show, Ipswich Town Heritage Society, in partnership with Ipswich Town Football Club and Ipswich Town Community Trust invite five to 16-year-olds to enter an art competition ‘Going to the Match’.

Here are the competition details...

We are asking youngsters to create a drawing, painting or collage inspired by their experiences of ‘Going to the Match’. Any medium can be used – paint of any sort, charcoal or pencil, crayon or felt tip, embroidery or tapestry or mosaic.

The brief can be interpreted in any way, within the theme of going to a match. It could be a Town first-team game, Town Women’s game or another match that they have been to. Or, if they haven’t been to a game, how would they imagine it would be? 

The art work can feature the outside or inside of the ground, getting ready at home or the journey to the stadium. It can be based on the past, present or how it might be like in the future.

Please note, that we will only be able to accept A4 landscape and two-dimensional entries. 

Judging

Entries will be judged in four different groups, divided by school year as follows: years 1-3, 4-6, 7-8 and 9-11.

Closing Date

All entries must be submitted by Friday, 20 May. Entries received after this time will not be included in the judging.

To enter...

Entries should either be:

  • Posted to Elizabeth Edwards, Ipswich Town Football Club, Portman Road, Ipswich IP1 2DA
  • Left at the Ipswich Town Football Club main reception
  • Scanned and emailed to itfcheritage@gmail.com

Please note that we will not be able to return entries.
