They’ll ask you to photograph the chalk artwork when you’ve finished and e-mail them the pictures of the chalk artwork, letting them know the age of the participant (when filling you details on payment).
The prizes will be City Arts Gift Vouchers for children (to 12 years old), teen (13 to 17 years old) and adult (18 +) categories.
