Any nursery, first, infant, junior, primary or middle school (but only work by children up to and including Year 6 will be considered for the 'Take One Picture' exhibition).

  2) Is it a competition?
No, Take One Picture is not a competition; there is no winner. Every school who submits their project to us will receive a certificate. Work from specific year groups, or certain whole school projects, will be chosen to be displayed at the National Gallery in the annual display. The Gallery is particularly keen to showcase schools which have taken the painting as inspiration for work across the curriculum, and particular projects which have incorporated learning in a number of different subjects. Each displayed project will enable the viewer to look at the focus painting with fresh eyes and with deeper understanding. See work from previous years.
 
   
  3) How do I submit work?
Please send a record of your project to us by 31 October 2016. This can be a record of work completed or work in progress, but no original work should be sent. Submissions can take a number of forms: powerpoint and digital audio/video files sent via email, memory stick or disc, or a physical portfolio (no larger than A3 please). Please make sure that you have the relevant permissions for children who appear in any film that you are submitting for the display.

  4) What happens next?
A team of people from the National Gallery Education Department look carefully at all of the submissions. Decisions will be taken as to which physical and digital projects will feature in the display. So that we are able to celebrate work from as many schools as possible, projects from more schools will be showcased in photographic format on a rolling slideshow. We will inform schools of these decisions by the end of January 2017.
 
   
  5) What happens if our school's work is selected for display?
We will let you know in January if work from your schools is selected for display and discuss with you the arrangements. Unless it is a digital file or easy to send via recorded delivery, the Education Department will arrange for the work to be brought to the Gallery. We ask you to pack and label the work; the National Gallery will cover costs. We will arrange for the work to be delivered back to the school after the end of the display. We will also be in touch regarding text to accompany the work and the relevant permissions.
 
   
  6) Will we be able to visit the display?
Absolutely. We hope that you will bring as many pupils as possible to see the display. Simply ring our Schools Officer on 0207 747 5890 to arrange a free one-hour Gallery session with extra time built in to see the Take One Picture display. We also hope that children will come to the Gallery in the holidays with their parents and carers.
 
   
  7) What will the display be like?
The display is held in a dedicated room of the National Gallery. Admission to the display as well as to the Gallery is free.
