Our Newtown: Big Art Competition!

To celebrate all that is great about our town, and to mark the publication of the “Our Town, Our Plan: The Newtown & Llanllwchaiarn Place Plan”, the Town Council is launching an art competition, inviting local people to send in pictures showing “What I Love About Newtown”.

Your picture can show your favourite place to walk, play or meet friends or a favourite building or place to visit. Or maybe a picture of an inspirational person associated with Newtown. The brighter and more colourful, the better. You can draw, paint, create digital art or go bold with a 3D creation!


Winners will receive a cash prize and be exhibited at the Oriel Davies art gallery. Winners and runners up will be published in a special feature in the County Times and all entries will be displayed in an online gallery.

There are 3 age categories:

Under 11s – winner prize £25

11-18 – winner prize £50

Over 18s – winner prize £75

“Our Town, Our Plan: The Newtown & Llanllwchaiarn Place Plan 2021-2036” is a 15-year plan for the future of the town. It was put together with the involvement of 48 local organisations and based on over 7,000 comments and ideas from the community.

Lead Councillor for the Place Plan, Cllr Richard Edwards: “Everything about the Newtown Place Plan is big! From all the evidence that was collected, to the huge amount of time and energy that the community contributed to get it done. “Our Town, Our Plan” shows us a way forward to creating a town where people want to live, work and visit. And now comes Our Newtown: Big Art Competition!
