Sketch for Survival Junior Finalists 2023



We have so enjoyed viewing all the Junior artworks again this year. Thank you so much to everyone who took part. We know how much time and effort goes into creating and sharing these wonderful artworks. Our selection panel led by Sophie Green and Gary Hodges were really impressed by the talent on show, and the colour and imagination in some of the pieces.

Well done to the finalists – these 20 artworks will be exhibited in Edinburgh and London and sold via online auction in support of our Project Fund (concludes 12 November).

All 20 finalists go forward to the People’s Choice Award – have your say and vote for your favourite (voting closes 18 October).


Many congratulations to the finalists in the 1-7 age group, from Hungary, Australia, India and Myanmar, with artworks of a ring-tailed lemur, Australian sealion, Indian pangolin and red panda.



Congratulations to the finalists in our 8-12 category with artworks from Singapore, Vietnam, Scotland, New Zealand, India and China.
