Creative family can win €1k with art challenge

Museum of Everyone has as launched the MOE Family Art Challenge for families based in Offaly.

MOE have joined forces with Tullamore Tidy Towns Association and Tullamore Credit Union Ltd to bring you a super creative challenge for the whole family.

MOE is an initiative funded by Offaly County Council Arts Office, Creative Ireland and the Arts Council.

To enter, all you have to do is email and tell a little about your family, accompanied by a family portrait.

You will receive an email welcoming you to the MOE Family Challenge, telling you everything you need to know about the competition.

Three weeks of challenges commences today, Friday April 30, and you will receive a link to our video clue.

You have a week to send us your artwork. The deadline for the final challenge is Friday April 21.

Judging will begin and the winners will be announced Friday May 21 at 5pm and the winners will be announced on Friday May 28.

The art work will be displayed on MOE’s online Gallery and the overall winning family will receive a cash prize of €1000!

This competition is open to families based all over Offaly and no family is too big or too small. For example, a family can be defined as a group of two people or more related by birth, marriage, or adoption and residing together.


Entries must be new work created in response to each week's clue. Everyone in the family has a part in making each week's artwork.

Entries must include credits - You can send us a behind-the-scenes video of the making of your art, or you can send us a list of who did what - Camera, Wardrobe, Makeup, Painting, etc. Each family submits three pieces of work. These will be judged and the winning family will win a prize of €1000
