Christmas Art Competition Winners 2019

14 Jan - 9 Feb 2020
10:00 - 17:00

Level 4, Learning Centre


Our popular Christmas Art Competition has been running for over 45 years. This year we had 460 drawings submitted over just three days at the end of December 2019. This made choosing winners a difficult job for our judging panel. 

Drawings were very varied and featured objects from across the collections, and the museum building. Here are some of the winning entries from the six categories, alongside the real object in the museum.

You can see all the winners on display in the Learning Centre at the National Museum of Scotland until Sunday 9 February 2020.
