APL is pleased to announce the launch of the Young Art 2022 competition organized by the Royal College of Art. Through the APL, students from the Moyenne Section to Terminale of LFCG are all invited to participate.             

This prestigious competition, in which many colleges and schools in the UK participate, takes place every year (except for 2021 due to the pandemic situation). The theme proposed by RCA this year is: “LOOKING OUT“.

Each year, APL receives many outstanding artworks from LFCG students and the works selected by the RCA will be exhibited in the premises of the Royal College of Art from April 26th to 29th, 2022.

This competition is also organized to support a cause – the entry fee for each student (£2) is donated to UCL, Institute of Child Health Great Ormond Street Hospital for research purposes.

Finally, the works that have not been selected by the RCA in April will form part of a second round of competition organized by the APL held within LFCG, with the participation of a jury. The winners will be rewarded and their works will be presented on the APL website.
