There were five categories in the Art in Heaven competition this year, all attracting very large numbers of entries.  NATRE estimate that over 20 000 children and young people took part in the competition, and they would like thank them all, and their teachers for the insight, hard work and spiritual thinking that went on. Winning one of the 40 prizes is a great achievement!

Many teachers wrote to share experiences of the competition: ‘it has an impact on standards, depth, creativity and enjoyment in RE for pupils aged 5-18’. Judging, as always, was a tremendous challenge. The winners all receive a shopping voucher, and winning schools are also rewarded with a voucher worth £35 to spend on NATRE / RE Today resources, membership or CPD of their choice. All entrants sent to NATRE receive certificates of achievement.

The web gallery gets hundreds of thousands of hits: do use it with your pupils as preparation for the next competition and as good RE. The winners and the full range of commended entries are now available to view on our website. Next year’s competition details are available online, and the fresh themes for 2018 are enclosed with this mailing. We look forward to seeing your pupils work next year! Many schools have built the competition into their schemes of RE work, and we encourage this!

NATRE’s Spirited Arts competition benefit from the generous support of the All Saints Educational Trust and the Westhill Trust, so we run the competition on a free to enter basis! Thanks to them for their invaluable support.
