Time for Scotland to get to the drawing board

Noise Festival is an online event that runs every two years to provide a showcase for artistic talent throughout the UK, but there has been a sad lack of response from young artists in Scotland.

The 2006 festival took more than 4,000 pieces of artwork, but only about 100 of those came from Scotland. We have no regional bias and, other than population size, we don't understand why there's been such a low response from Scotland.

Much of our work as a charity complements the work being done in schools and colleges. So it should interest teachers as it could add to their work and offer a different dimension to what they are doing in the classroom.

We are now in the submission period for the 2008 festival and, as well as displaying the work of young artists (under-25s), we are launching a number of projects as part of a Noise Creative Talent Showcase.

The work can be from any creative discipline as long as it can be presented digitally. The judging panel includes representatives from architecture, product design, fine art, graphics, new media and advertising, music and photography. Anyone interested in entering can find out more on our website.
