Early Childhood Australia is seeking submissions for children’s art from across Australia to feature in our publications.


We accept any two-dimensional children’s artwork, including painting, drawing, photography or multimedia. The artwork must be on paper or cardboard. If the artwork is a photograph, this can be submitted as a digital file. 

One submission will be featured on the cover of the 2022 Early Years Planners (Daily or Weekly). Additional entries may be selected to feature in other ECA publications (print and/or digital).

Please ensure you read the terms and conditions before entering, and that you have permission from your service and the family of the child before submitting. We also request that the child is provided an opportunity to sign the ‘artist permission’ as the artist of the work.

The winning service will receive five 2022 Early Years Planners featuring their artwork to share with the child and their family, and to use in across 2022. Secondary winners will have their artworks used in other ECA media and will receive one daily planner.

To enter:

  1. Download the entry form here and complete it.
  2. Either scan the artwork or take a high-quality photograph of it. Please ensure the submission does not exceed 1GB.
  3. Email the completed entry form and the artwork to marketing@earlychildhood.org.au with the subject line ART ENTRY.

Keep in mind:

  1. Strictly one entry per person.
  2. Please ensure there are no identifying features (children, children’s names, etc) in the images.
  3. This is a great way to advocate for the value of children’s art and respect the ownership of their creations. Where possible, provide an opportunity for the child to sign the ‘artist permission’ as the artist of the work found on the bottom of our entry form.
  4. Please ensure the files are .pdf ,.jpg/jpeg, or .png.
  5. Please keep the artwork safe! We will ask you to post the original copy to us to make prints, or scan it professionally, if you win!

Submissions close midnight Monday 5 October. 

Read the terms and conditions here.

Please contact marketing@earlychildhood.org.au should you have any questions about the call-out.
