The aim is to engage KS4 students in expressing their opinions, thoughts and ideas about art with confidence, and to enjoy researching their chosen piece.

Each student is invited to submit a 2 – 3 minute film of themselves speaking about a work of art, architecture or artefact of their choice.

Judges from the University of Leeds and our partner galleries will view each film looking at content, structure, delivery and the speaker’s original approach and unique potential before choosing entrants to go forward as finalists.
