1041 Children from all over the World sent us their Rainforest Art
Thank you to all the children who joined us on this amazing project and to the adults who encouraged them and sent their work to us. 1041 children sent in their work from the UK, Hungary, Kenya, China & Hong Kong.
The work has all been looked at individually by a panel of judges including artist John Dyer, Explorer and president of Survival International Robin Hanbury-Tenison OBE and representatives from The Eden Project and Falmouth Art Gallery.
We are thrilled to be hosting such a wonderful online exhibition of young artists' work. The top 300 entries will be displayed in the Eden Project Rainforest Biome until the end of the October 2015 half term. The top 24 are on display until January 7th 2016.

"Just to say how impressive the display of childrens' art is. Absolutely astonishing, and the best one I have ever seen. Well done to John Dyer." Roy Goodman
