Six year old Kate Holt of Helmshore Primary School in Rossendale, Lancashire won first prize in the aged 4 -7 age category, Mini Monets. Hollie Turner, aged 12 of All Hallows Catholic High School in Penwortham, Lancashire won first prize in the 12 - 14 category, Dazzling Da Vincis.

Kate and Hollie were presented with their prizes, a Kindle Fire HD 7 by Sam James, Centre for rugby team Sale Sharks.

Kate said: "I really enjoyed the art competition. When I heard that I had won first place my mouth dropped to the floor."

Their schools also won a contribution towards art supplies and were given a one years free subscription to QuickCall - Browne Jacobsons quick response specialist legal telephone advisory service.

Mr Walker, Kates school teacher at Helmshore Primary School commented:"Helmshore Primary School views creativity as the heart of excellent learning. The Browne Jacobson Art Competition is an exciting way to showcase childrens talents and promote creativity across the school. We are very proud of Kates achievement this year and look forward to working on next years project!"

Head of Art, Lynne Calland at All Hallows Catholic High School added:"We were extremely pleased that our pupil Hollie Turner won the Dazzling Da Vinci category, not only winning a Kindle for herself, but also £400 for our Art department. It was a great afternoon and we will certainly take part in future events."

1st prize

Philip Hodgkinson - co-founder of the book the Good Old Drawing and well-known childrens illustrator Martin Impey were both on the judging panel and tasked with picking the winners again.

Dai Durbridge, Education Partner at Browne Jacobson, commented:

"The response to the competition has yet again been remarkable and it was no easy task for the judges to pick one winner. The standard of all of the submissions was at such a high level but it was the artwork of Kate and Hollie that really stood out for the judges because of the innovative way they presented ways to protect the environment."

The ceremony, which took place on Friday 13 March at Manchesters Museum of Science & Industry, celebrated all of the entrants and the winners of each category and was also an opportunity to showcase all of the winning artwork.
