ARTiculation Prize

The ARTiculation Prize is the Roche Court Educational Trust’s annual national arts public speaking competition for young people aged between 16 and 19. It’s an inspiring and exciting way to showcase how the visual arts can be interpreted and shared with a wide audience.

Students are invited to each deliver a ten-minute presentation to an audience about a work of art, architecture or an artefact of their choice. Adjudicators then assess each presentation as a whole, looking at content, structure, delivery and the speaker’s original approach and unique potential.

Schools are required to hold Internal School Heats to select a student to represent their school at Regional Finals which take place at museums and galleries across the country.

Entries for the 2022 ARTiculation Prize are now closed.

We still have some speakers’ places left in certain regions. If you have missed the deadline but would like to enquire about available places please contact Coco Lloyd, ARTiculation Schools Liaison Officer [email protected]

Schools who enter the Prize each send a student speaker to represent their school at an online or live event. These will be held between January and March 2022.  If you have any questions about the Prize or the entry process, please contact [email protected]

The ARTiculation Prize Competition Guidelines and Terms and Conditions are available here.
