Fourth Plinth Schools Competition


Every year the Mayor of London invites London’s primary and secondary schoolchildren to create artworks, inspired by the commissions for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square and London life. 

The Fourth Plinth Schools Competition Award Ceremony at City Hall on 27th April.  There were prize winners from all 33 London Boroughs including our very own Isis Dimitriadis representing Hillingdon. Her work is proudly displayed in the exhibition and will remain in the main gallery space at City Hall until the end of June. 

The current Fourth Plinth Artist, David Shrigley, presented the awards and also judged the entries. His bronze sculpture entitled ‘Really Good’ of a giant hand with the thumb up is currently on display in Trafalgar square. 

The event was very inspiring and shows the importance of art in the curriculum from all types of London schools and for children of all ages. The artworks on display were imaginative, innovative and represent the concerns and issues facing children in London and society today.
