The Saatchi Gallery / Deutsche Bank Art Prize for Schools received over 20,000 entries this year. From this, 20 art works were selected for the exhibition which has now opened at the Saatchi Gallery and will run from 29 April - 4 May 2015.

The Saatchi Gallery / Deutsche Bank Art Prize for Schools is open to primary, secondary and sixth form schools from around the world. Schools can submit art work from students between the ages of 4 and 18. The competition is now closed and will reopen in Autumn 2015.

Schools can enter as many art works as they wish, and there is no prescribed theme for works entered, nor is there a restriction on media used (sculpture, painting, installation, photography and mixed media art works are all eligible and welcome).

The Prize is part of the Saatchi Gallery's education programme, which is committed to introducing contemporary art to younger audiences.

Deutsche Bank's support of the Prize is part of its Born to Be youth engagement programme which is committed to helping young people engage with education and fulfil their potential. The support of Born to Be has enabled the Saatchi Gallery to offer tailored artist-led workshops to pupils from schools in disadvantaged areas. The workshops increase pupils' understanding of fine art processes and provide the opportunity to work with specialist art materials, helping pupils to explore and fulfil their creative potential.

The Saatchi Gallery has a 30-year-long history of supporting emerging artists and bringing contemporary art to as wide an audience as possible. The Saatchi Gallery/ Deutsche Bank Art Prize for Schools aims to support and encourage budding young artists by providing them with a platform to showcase their work, and giving them the confidence to consider a career in the arts.
