Rankin selects winners of the Fourth Plinth Schools Awards

The winners of the Fourth Plinth Schools Awards 2024 were announced, with the winning artwork on display at an exhibition in London’s City Hall until the end of June 2024. They were chosen by this year’s guest judge, the internationally renowned photographer Rankin. 

The annual competition invites London schoolchildren between the ages of 5 and 15 to create artwork inspired by past and present commissions for Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth. It is open to all primary and secondary schools in the capital. Those entering can use any medium, including drawing, painting, sculpture, collage and digital to create their artwork. Group and individual entries are welcome.

The age group winning works for the 2024 awards are:

Ages 5 – 7 winner: Autumn, Strand-on-the-Green Junior School, Hounslow

Ages 8 – 11 winner: Creature, Townley High School, Bexley

Ages 12 – 15 winner: The Dog who went to Space, Bromley High School

For the first time in the history of the Fourth Plinth, St Martin-In-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square is partnering with the Fourth Plinth Schools Awards to fabricate the three winning works. These will be installed in the historic building and unveiled this autumn, remaining on display until the end of the year.
