The COBIS art competition is open to students from the Council of British International Schools' member schools. The theme changes each year. The 2019 art competition theme is a challenge for students to “Introduce Yourself”. Through a piece of art, students should convey who they are; this could be a self-portrait or a reflection on the things, feelings, surroundings etc. that make all COBIS students so wonderfully unique.
There are five categories students can enter:
Early Years and Foundation Stage
Key Stage 1
Key Stage 2
Key Stage 3

Competitiveness increases according to age categories as the standards expected of upperclassmen are higher than those of younger students. Only three winners are selected out of over 600 entries.
See 2018 winner.
Must be a talented artist.
The student only needs to enter a single art piece. It could even be a piece that they submitted for GCSE/A-level or other examinations from a previous year.
Schools must enter on behalf of students, and may enter up to three submissions for each category.
Entries should be uploaded to the COBIS website. Please click the apply button.
