IARS’ Online Competition 


Our Competition has closed. Watch the video below to see the winners of each category:

In order to bring the community together and inspire young people during times of COVID, IARS organized an Online Competition for all ages and abilities.

We encouraged young people to take this opportunity to do something different during lockdown and explore their own abilities, talk about what their struggles have been during lockdown, and what has kept them positive while spreading some community spirit!


This was a great opportunity to keep young people entertained during lockdown, to showcase their talents and to win amazing prizes!

Our Prizes

Thanks to the support of Southwark Council, we were able to arrange a number of prizes for those who wanted to participate in our competition! Submissions varied from painting, poetry, dancing, cooking, singing, cross stitching etc.. so this was the perfect opportunity for everyone to explore your abilities!
