HMS Unicorn School Art Competition 2024!

We are delighted to announce that our annual HMS Unicorn School Art Competition is open for 2024!

The theme this year is 'Inspired by the Sea' so you and your class can get your creative juices flowing and enter one of our seven categories - Nurseries, P1-3,  P4-5, P6-7, Secondary, ASN or Group. 

There are prizes up for grabs for the winners of each category. 

Winners in all categories except Group win:

  • Artwork displayed on board HMS Unicorn
  • Annual family pass
  • An HMS Unicorn medal
  • A free school workshop on board HMS Unicorn for their class

There are also prizes available for 2nd and 3rd place in each category. 

The Group category winner wins:

  • Artwork displayed on board HMS Unicorn
  • Free ticket to HMS Unicorn
  • An HMS Unicorn medal
  • A free school workshop on board HMS Unicorn for their class

It's all to play for - we accept work in any medium from drawing to pottery to painting to sculpture, the only thing we ask is that artwork does not contain any glitter. The competition closes on Friday 29th March and all entries must be received by then. 

Winners will be announced by Monday 15th April. 

Winning artworks will be displayed on board the ship until Sunday 30th June and there will be a prizegiving ceremony for the winners on board the ship on Saturday 20th April. 

This competition is open to any school in Dundee, Angus, Fife and Perthshire. Pupils' work must be entered by their class teachers. Unfortunately we cannot return artwork that has been entered in to the competition. 

If you have any questions about the competition please get in touch with Caroline Taylor, Volunteering, Engagement and Learning Officer, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We can't wait to see the amazing artwork that you create!
