STAEDTLER Secondary School ‘Artists of the Year’ Competition

The STAEDTLER Secondary School Artists of the Year competition is back!

Open to all year 7 to 12 students, it’s a chance for all up and coming artists to share their work for the opportunity to win 1 of 11 prizes. Entries open on 14th May and close on 20th June.

With the help of our panel of 3 talented judges, we are searching for the STAEDTLER Junior (years 7-9) and Senior (years 10-12) Artist of the Year 2024.

Both first-place winners will receive a $1,000 Visa gift card!



Using your favourite STAEDTLER products, show us your creativity and produce a masterpiece you’d like to submit.

You can get your inspiration from anywhere; a favourite place, a person, an animal or a school art project – we can’t wait to see your work of art!


Upload a photo of your artwork on the STAEDTLER competition website and follow the prompts. If you are a teacher, you can enter for your students and upload multiple entries at once. You will need to include artwork title, your name, school and year group.

Please ensure the surface the artwork has been produced on e.g. canvas or paper is clearly visible.

Note: digitally created or digitally enhanced artwork will not be accepted.


Entries close on Thursday 20th June and the judging and voting will then take place.

You can vote for the People’s Choice Award from 21st -30th June – just come back to the competition website.

Winners will be announced 12th July.

Good luck!
