You can now see the winners here
Before Christmas, I visited one of the local secondary schools and spoke to some A Level Art students about doing some artwork for The Ardenna Crossing as part of a competition. When I publish the book this year, I’d love to be able to include some artwork from someone local, especially if it’s a first step for some talented young individual.
I gave them one idea that I had and then asked them to do some sketches based upon that and their own interpretations. The first stage of the competition was to do sketches and I’m proud to be able to present their entries here. Out of these, I will be selecting two winners. They will then be asked to create a final version of their piece and I will pick a winner from those.
I’ve been thrilled to receive these entries and the level of skill evident has been a real pleasure to see. Without further ado, here are the entrants and their work:
Aleks Dedejeva (Age 16)
Bethan Wiffen-Bird (Age 16)
Lucy Gilchrist (Age 16)
Aimee Cox (Age 16)
Isla Phillips (Age 17)
So, there they are. I’m going to have a think about it and announce the winners here on my website on Monday 22nd January. Between now and then, I’d love it if you shared this post far and wide to get as much exposure as possible for the hard work these young people have put in. I’d also love to hear in the comments below if you have favourites from those above.
If you want to know more about me and the book, you can do so here.
There is even a sample here.
Thanks for reading,
