To enter your child’s art into the Folk Horror Revival: Young Artist of the Month competition –

Please send scans or photographs of the child’s work by email to fhryoungartistawards@gmail.com

Please include the child’s name and age
(the competition is open to children up to the age of 12).

Please include a postal address so that we can send a certificate to each young artist and the book to that month’s winner. (Email and postal addresses will not be shared online nor with any other party and will be used by us only in association to this competition. )

By submitting the child’s work you agree to us potentially publishing it in a book containing all the Young Artist competition entries (the book would likely be printed in black and white). Such a book will be non-profit for Folk Horror Revival / Wyrd Harvest Press with all sales profits being charitably donated to The Wildlife Trusts environmental, community and conservation projects.
All young artists will be granted a free PDF digital copy of the book, (as we utilise Print on Demand and are non profit, we are alas unable to supply young artists with hard-copy paper editions of the book).

The monthly winner of the competition will receive a copy of the book
Hares in the Moonlight by Sharron Krauss.
All Young artists will receive a little Thank You by post.



Our first Folk Horror Revival Young Artist of the Month

Our Young Artist of the Month for April is Harry Stagg.

Harry is 8 years old and is from East London. He enjoys acting and karate and watching cartoons with his dad. His favourite cartoons are Regular Show, Invader Zim and Ghostbusters. His favourite band is Guns & Roses and his favourite song is Jukebox Hero by Foreigner. Harry really enjoys ghosts and monsters and is learning to play Magic The Gathering (he has already beaten his dad multiple times.)

Harry wants to grow up to be an artist and thanks to the support of the members of Folk Horror Revival, he is more determined than ever and is already planning to make it happen.

Harry’s wonderful drawing of a gargoyle fired the imagination of the admin team and we think he truly captures the essence of his subject. Well done Harry, and congratulations on being our very first Young Artist of the Month.

If you know a young artist aged 16 or under who you feel has produced artwork worthy of inclusion, please email us with “Young Artist” in the title to (folkhorrorrevival@gmail.com). Please remember to include the young artist’s name, age and a short profile, along with a copy of their work.
