Ke Ge, a pupil of the Manchester Creative Arts and Media Academy in the Greater Manchester area walked away with first prize in the 3rd North West Schools Arts Competition.

Ke entered the competition under the category Wannabe Warhols which was aimed at pupils aged 15 - 16 and fought off competition from over 700 entrants, across 50 schools in the region.

He was presented with his prize, a Kindle Fire HD 7 by Sam James, Centre for rugby team Sale Sharks.

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

Kate OBrien, who teaches Art at Manchesters Creative Arts and Media Academy commented:"We are thrilled to have both a winner and a highly commended pupil at the North West Schools Art Competition. This creative event was an opportunity for our pupils to have their great talents recognised in a wider context than just within school, and for them to further build their confidence as budding artists!"  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 Ke that really stood out for the judges because of the innovative way it 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.
