Now in its fifth year, our cutting edge STEAM workshops bring natural history to life through cross-curricular learning, using the latest technology alongside traditional and new media and techniques. The resulting work is entered into our annual competition, with finalists and their families invited to Burlington House for our celebration event, where contestants are eligible for a host of wonderful prizes.

In addition to work made during booked workshops, individual entries are accepted. Winners will take home some amazing prizes including leisure vouchers, science and art goodies for the whole family to enjoy!

Prizes are also presented to our most engaged community partners, as well as schools with the most finalists. Entries will be accepted in a wide variety of media and may cover a wide range of concepts relating to life science. We love anything that shows off young artists' amazing creativity with a link to natural history.

This project is proud to be working in partnership with schools and settings on their Artsmark Award journey.
