National Chairman's Competition for Young Arts Groups 2014
2014's intriguing theme was LAND ART SCULPTURE. Entrants were asked to explore their local countryside, beaches or parks and create a piece of sculpture from what they find, then take a really good photograph of it.  Results and winning entries can be found in the PDF to the right of the screen.

National NADFAS Chairman’s Competition for Young Arts 2013 Results
the Young Arts Group members were asked to explore the relationship between what we see on the outside & what is revealed within. This year’s judging saw a break with tradition as we had a members’ vote. We displayed all the entries at Rising to the Challenge (the celebration of 40 years of NADFAS Volunteering) on 12 November at Kensington Town Hall and those attending the event were asked to vote for their favourite competition entries.  Click here to see the results
