The irish Times is holding a children’s art exhibition for those kids who have emigrated in the past few years and who are under 12.

The Times states: The Irish Times is running a children's art competition for those who have emigrated in the last few years, which may be of interest to you or someone you know. We would be grateful if you could forward this email to anyone with kids who has recently relocated from Ireland, or share through Facebook or Twitter. All information can be found here.


Irish children – thats anyone aged 12 or under – who have recently moved abroad are invited to create a painting or drawing based on the experience. It could be a picture of your new home, or some aspect of the country you now live in, or it could be a picture of the friends, family or place you left behind, or anything else inspired by the move and change of scene.

All entries will be featured on the Generation Emigration blog, and our 10 favourite pictures will be printed in the newspaper and win an international book voucher, which will allow you to order a book online and have it posted to you in your new home.
How to enter:
