With Great Regret

Despite best efforts, Farécla has made the tough decision to cancel the 2021 Apprentice & Student Bonnet Painting Competition.

The 2021 competition would have marked the third Bonnet Painting Competition run by Farécla, having run contests in 2018 and 2019 - following the postponement of the 2020 competition due to COVID-19

2020 was a strange year for all and there is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding 2021.

Farécla are committed to showcasing young talent in our industry and were confident that the contest could be carried out in the "new-normal" with a few tweaks - but it became clear after our initial optimism announcing the contest during National Apprenticeship Week that the contest was not feasible or right at this time.

Farécla hope to bring the contest back again in the future and once again would like to extend an apology to any apprentices, students and sponsors that were looking forward to taking part in the 2021 contest - and indeed those who registered for 2020 and were therefore eligible to take part in this years contest.
