PHOTO GALLERY: Sightsavers Junior Painter Awards

On Tuesday April 17th, the winners of the Sightsavers Junior Painter Awards 2018 were unveiled in The Science Gallery, Dublin.

The competition was as strong as ever and this year’s theme ‘Put Us In The Picture’ inspired creative entries from hundreds of primary schools across the country.

The annual Junior Painter Awards competition was devised by Sightsavers to inspire Irish children to express their artistic talent through painting, whilst developing an appreciation of the importance and value of their sight and the additional challenges facing those living with visual impairment in developing countries.


Dylan Williams (age 8) from Ennis National School in Co. Clare has been highly commended for his artwork in this year’s Sightsavers Junior Painter Awards in The Science Gallery, Dublin.

Sightsavers Ireland is a charity that works in more than 30 developing countries to prevent blindness, restore sight and advocate for social inclusion and equal rights for people with disabilities.
