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.
