COBIS Art Competition 2019

"Introduce Yourself"

Thank you to all COBIS Member Schools who entered artwork into this year's competition. We received more than 600 entries from over 100 COBIS Schools. The judges very impressed by the standard of artwork and commented on the vast number of outstanding pieces. 

This year’s competition theme was a challenge for students to “Introduce Yourself”. Through a piece of art, students could convey who they are; this could be a self-portrait or a reflection on the things, feelings, surroundings etc. that make all COBIS students so wonderfully unique.
