schools line up to show off artistic talents

11 February 2013

More than 80 schools across the North West have signed up to an arts competition set up to find some of the regions most talented young artists.

The competition, which is being organised by Manchester based law firm Browne Jacobson, is inviting primary and secondary school children from across the region to put pen to paper to produce an image which they think best encapsulates growing up in the North-West.

Entitled Growing up where I live the competition is split into four categories with the organisers seeking entries from school children at key stages 1, 2, 3 and 4. Ten from each category will then be shortlisted to have their work featured in an exclusive exhibition at the Cube Gallery in Manchester. The deadline for entries is 25 February.

The exhibition will open with a VIP invite-only event attended by esteemed members of Manchesters creative and education worlds, as well as finalists school friends and family.

The winners in each category will each receive an iPad, the runners up will receive a Samsung Galaxy tablet and those placed third will win an iPod Nano. All of the winners schools will receive a contribution towards art supplies and be given a years free subscription to Browne Jacobsons QuickCall service.

Dominic Swift, who heads up Browne Jacobsons Manchester office and its education group, said he was delighted with the response: "The response to the competition from local schools has been fantastic and exceeded our expectations. Whilst there are less than two weeks to submit entries its not too late for schools to register."

The competition will be judged by representatives from Browne Jacobson, as well as one of the regions most famous illustrators, Stanley Chow.

Stanley Chow commented:

"Initiatives such as these are a great way of engaging with young people and awakening their passion in the arts. Its important to identify and celebrate the creative talents of young people across the North West and with the regions many unique qualities. Im looking forward to seeing some inspirational entries."
