Rugby star to celebrate young artists

3 March 2015

Two rugby stars of Sale Sharks fame will jointly honour some of the North Wests most talented young artists this month.

They will announce the winners of the 3rd North West Schools art competition, which is organised by local law firm Browne Jacobson, at Manchesters Museum of Science & Industry on 13 March.

This years competition has seen over 700 entrants submit their artwork from more than 50 schools from across the region.

The deadline for entries has now closed and over the coming week the competition organisers and judges, Philip Hodgkinson - co-founder of the book the Good Old Drawing and well-known childrens illustrator Martin Impey, will be shortlisting those entries that best demonstrate inventive and creative ways to protect the environment - the theme of this years competition.

Dai Durbridge, Education Partner at Browne Jacobson, commented:

"We have once again had an overwhelming response to the competition which has showcased the strong artistic talent of pupils and schools across the North West. We are strong advocates of local businesses supporting and working in partnership with their local schools. As a firm that advises schools every day it has been very rewarding to promote an initiative which we hope has helped to recognise and nurture young artistic talent in our community."
