John Downton Trophy competition

This year we are running a competition to design a new trophy for the John Downton Award. The John Downton Award encourages and celebrates the creativity of Kent's young artists. It is open to students aged 11 to 18 from schools and colleges across Kent.

You may enter both the John Downton Awards and the trophy competition, but entries must be submitted on separate application forms.

The winning design will be announced at the Awards Evening on 19 November 2019 and will be produced for presentation at the 2020 awards.

Please email johndowntonwards@kent.gov.uk for more information about the competition.
