Following a pause during the pandemic it’s brilliant to bring back our art competition, My Future Aspirations.

It challenges S1 and S2 pupils from the northeast to think about the careers they’d love to work towards and then express those hopes and dreams by creating a self-portrait.

Participating schools select up to 8 portraits to enter and these were judged by our panel last week. The winner is a closely guarded secret, only to be revealed at the same time as we announce The People’s Choice, which is the public vote on Facebook.

Enjoy all the entries by virtually walking through our online gallery:

You can vote for your favourite on our Facebook page, where you’ll find a photo album for each school. A like or love reaction is counted as 1 vote.

Thanks for taking part!
