As part of a year of celebrations around Arthur Rackham’s 150th Birthday celebration, I have been collaborating with the Sussex Centre for Folklore, Fairy Tale and Fantasy to produce an exhibition and series of events related to his work in Sussex.  I am pleased to announce that one of these is a free to enter art competition for UK residents.

Art, competition, Arthur, Rackham, Kipling

Entries should be inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s “Puck of Pook’s Hill”, which Arthur Packham illustrated in 1906 for the American edition. Prizes include complete sets of PanMacmillan’s Rudyard Kipling books for children, and frames art prints of Arthur Rackham’s illustrations for the book.

There are three age categories: 5-10 years, 11-16 years, and 17+.

If you would like to take part, please send your artwork on A4 paper, (portrait or landscape), to:

Heather Robbins

Sussex Centre for Folklore, Fairy Tales and Fantasy

University of Chichester

College Lane


West Sussex

PO19 6PE

Further information, including terms and conditions and a link to an excerpt from the story, can be found HERE.

Good Luck!
