Max proves he's a potential Picasso

19 March 2014

Eight year old Max Baron, a pupil at Peel Park Primary School in Accrington, has proved hes a potential Picasso in the making after winning one of the top prizes in the 2nd North West Arts Competition, run by Browne Jacobson.

Max won first prize in the 8-11 year old Potential Picasso category, beating off competition from hundreds of other entrants who took part this year.

Max received his 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. His school 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, the judges that were 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 at Browne Jacobson, 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 the Potential Picassos category was exceptionally high but Maxs artwork really caught the eye of the judges and was the standout piece in that age group."
