This summer, to inspire young creative minds, we ran our third annual summer art competition. We asked entrants to create a painting, drawing, sculpture, assemblage, photograph or even performance that draws from one of the hundreds of artworks in our collection and we have been blown away by the number and calibre of entrants.
