History picture library
Look and Learn is a London-based picture library specialising in educational images and a member of BAPLA (the British Association of Picture Libraries and Agencies).
Since 2006 we have run monthly online children’s art competitions with the explicit objective of creating the world’s best gallery of children’s art. All entries appear in our online gallery, and children and their sponsors (teachers or parents) get their own personal online galleries.
Children entering the competitions receive personalised participation certificates in the form of printable PDFs, while the nine winners each month receive elaborate printed certificates bearing the Look and Learn company seal, as well as cash prizes ranging from £20 to £35. Entry to the competitions and gallery is free.
To date we have awarded well over £15,000 in prizes to children in more than 30 countries. In order to increase the benefits of participating in the art competitions, we have recently started offering children’s art for commercial licensing (e.g. for use in greetings cards), on the basis that half the net income will go to the child and the other half will be added to the art competitions prize fund.
