After the sadness of having to postpone our 8th annual dot-art Schools exhibition due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are thrilled to be able to hold this dot-art Schools virtual exhibition so that the creative work of children and young people from our participating schools can still be shared and celebrated online. We'd like to say a HUGE thank you to Arts Council England for making this possible.
Following a judges' shortlist and an online public vote, the 2020 exhibition showcases the winning work from each of our 76 participating schools. The overall winners of the 2020 dot-art Schools Competition were announced at a our first VIRTUAL prize-giving ceremony on Zoom, on 7th July, where the top three students from each of the participating schools in the Liverpool City Region were also celebrated.
