Greater Manchester pupils scoop hat-trick of prizes in art competition

19 March 2014

Pupils from two Greater Manchester Schools walked off with three of the top prizes in the 2nd North West Arts Competition, run by Browne Jacobson.

Seven year old Nasya Baidoo of C of E School of the Resurrection won first prize in the 4 -7 age category whilst Sale High School pupils Lowry Hazelwood, aged 14, and 15 year old Luvsansambu Luvsansambu scooped the top prize in the 12-14 and 15-16 aged categories respectively. All three winners beat off competition from hundreds of other entrants who took part this year.

Nasya, Lowry and Luvsansambu each received their prize, a Samsung Galaxy Tablet, from the Lord Mayor of Manchester Councillor Naeem ul Hassan at a special exhibition of the shortlisted entries in this years competition held at the Museum of Science & Industry in Manchester.

Their schools also received a contribution towards art supplies and given a one years free subscription to QuickCall, Browne Jacobsons rapid response specialist legal telephone advisory service.

The aim of the competition, which was in aid of Roald Dahls Marvellous Childrens Charity, was to put young artistic talents to the test by inviting primary and secondary school children from across the region to produce a piece of artwork that depicts what they think their city, town or village will look like in 2100.

The competition organisers received nearly 1000 entries and the judges tasked with picking the winners this year included a representative from Roald Dahls Marvellous Childrens Charity, the co-founder of the book the Good Old Drawing Philip Hodgkinson and well-known childrens illustrator, Martin Impey.

Dominic Swift, education partner for Browne Jacobson in Manchester, said:

"The response from schools across the north-west this year has been phenomenal and with nearly 1000 entries the judges had a tough job picking the winners. The competition in all the categories was exceptionally high but Nasya, Lowry and Luvsansambus artworks really caught the eye of the judges and were the standout pieces in their age group."
