Art for the Office Learner Competition

Art for the Office learner competition


We have recently redecorated our offices and training rooms, and whilst they are clean and smart looking, they are lacking artwork on the walls!

We would like to tap into the talent of our fantastic learners to furnish the walls with their artwork and provide a physical representation of our corporate values.

We are therefore inviting all our Recognised Centres to encourage their learners on creative courses to enter our 'Art for the Office' competition.

Learners, via their Centre, can submit pictures using any type of media such as photography, paint, pencils, computer generated images, collage (etc) up to A3 in size.

The artwork should reflect one or more of the Open College Network West Midlands Values:


How to enter

To enter the competition a good quality photograph of the finished artwork should be submitted to Open College Network West Midlands with the following information:

  • the learner’s name and age
  • the Centre’s name and relevant contact details
  • the media used
  • a short explanation of how it meets one or more of our values.

An independent panel of judges will choose the finalists and an overall winner of the competition. The learner with the overall winning piece will win a prize of £150.00. The Centre and learner will also be featured on our website and across our social media platforms.

The winning piece and a selection of finalist’s original artwork will eventually be framed and displayed in our office or training rooms at our head office in Wolverhampton for staff and visitors to admire.

So, if you have learners on creative courses such as photography, fine art, graphic design (etc) who would like the chance to have their work displayed in public and possibly win a prize, please encourage them to enter the competition which opens today, 10th January 2022 and closes at 5pm on Friday 22nd April 2022. Entries may be submitted any time within these dates.

Please send photographs of competition entries along with the information listed above to
