Calling all young artists in Tooting and Wandsworth!

Calling all young artists in Tooting and Wandsworth!

| by Tooting Newsie | Posted in News

Wandsworth Arts Fringe (WAF) returns this year from 3 to 19 May, and they’re looking for budding artists aged 11 and under from Tooting and across the borough!

2019 is WAF’s tenth anniversary and, as part of the celebrations, children from across Wandsworth are invited to design the front cover for WAF’s family guide. The guide will be distributed across the borough and will feature all the exciting family-friendly events happening during the festival.

As well as having their original artwork featured on the cover, the winner will receive a goody bag including free family tickets to a WAF show of their choice. Two runners up will also receive free family tickets for a WAF event.

The theme for the cover art is ‘WAF 10’, meaning the artwork should celebrate the festival’s tenth birthday and all the events that have taken place over the years. These include:

  • circus, acrobatics and dance (and ballet on bicycles!)
  • theatre, comedy and opera
  • film screenings, virtual reality and animation
  • rock bands, rappers, orchestras and choirs

The winning cover design will be fun, exciting, colourful and bold, and showcase all the different types of art WAF has to offer. The winner will be selected in collaboration with the Royal College of Art. For inspiration and to find out more about WAF, visit

The design should be on an A4 piece of paper, in landscape orientation, and can’t include any words. The final cover image will be shrunk down to A5 – so nothing on the design should be too small.

The competition is open to children aged 11 and under who live or go to school in the borough of Wandsworth.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm Friday 22 February. Post your submissions to: WAF Family Flyer Competition, Arts Office, Staff Yard, Battersea Park, SW11 4NJ

All entries must include the child’s name, age, school and a parent or guardian’s email address and contact telephone number on the back of the design. Unfortunately, submitted designs cannot be returned.

The winner will be notified by Friday 15 March.
