How does the competition work?

This is run through two rounds: a regional round, judged by RDA East Region officials; and a national round. The best entries from the regional competition will be put forwards to the national competition, judged at the RDA National Championships at Hartpury in July.

What classes are available?

There are six classes:

  1. 'Paint me a Picture' - Any age - Individual or Group (maximum 4 people). Any equestrian-themed picture created in any medium. Maximum size A1 (594mm c 841mm)
  2. Paintings and Drawings - Any age - Individual. Maximum size A1. The work MUST be relevant to RDA activities.
  3. Collages - Any age - Individual. Maximum size A2 (420mm x 594mm). The work MUST be relevant to RDA activities.

Sculptures have no maximum size but if they are entered to the national final they will be displayed in a tent with extremely limited space, on a table which is set up on grass and may not be brilliantly stable. The request from national is please to be sensible!
