Art Competition

Artists have always used nature to find inspiration. From the smallest plant to wide sweeping landscapes, from the delicate patterns on an insect wing to vast flocks of migrating birds.

We would love to see what inspires you. Draw, paint, sculpt or collage a piece of artwork inspired by nature and send us a photo of your creation.
