Could you be Johnstone's 2018 Young Painter of the Year?

Monday 9th April 2018

Johnstone’s Trade has once again launched its hunt for the UK’s best young painting and decorating talent, with its 2018 Young Painter of the Year competition. Now in its 14th year, the search is set to be the biggest yet, with more prizes than ever before, including cash and the latest painting and decorating products from top suppliers.

In a twist on previous years, the 2018 Young Painter of the Year competition will crown a total of eight regional winners, as well as eight runners up. Entrants will battle it out at their nearest skills-based regional final, taking place at colleges across the UK throughout April and May.

The Midlands heats will take place at South Leicestershire College on Wednesday 23 May 2018.

The winner from each region will receive £200, as well as a fantastic prize bundle of quality decorating tools from a range of leading suppliers, including Toupret, Purdy, 3M, Mirka, Packexe and more.

A runner-up will also be awarded a cash prize of £100, while everyone that enters will receive a selection of Fat Hog sundries.

What’s more, this year’s eight regional winners will also be invited to get involved in Johnstone’s Trade’s many charitable painting and decorating projects across the UK.

If you’re aged between 17 and 27 and studying towards an NVQ Level 1 or 2 in Painting and Decorating or a Diploma in Construction Level 2, click here to apply now.

Entries close ten days before each regional final.
