Search is on for best young artists

22 September 2014

The search is on to find the best young local artists in the North West for Browne Jacobsons Schools Arts Competition.

The competition, organised by law firm Browne Jacobson and now in its third year, is inviting local primary and secondary school children to produce a piece of art encapsulating this years theme looking after our environment.

This years entries will be judged by co-founder of the Good Old Drawing book Philip Hodgkinson and well-known childrens book illustrator, Martin Impey.

Dominic Swift, education partner at Browne Jacobson, said:

"It is important to develop strong partnerships between business, the arts and education that together enrich the lives of the communities we serve. As a firm that works with schools every day we see first-hand the incredible talent that exists across the region. This competition is a great way of nurturing and rewarding that talent, dedication and hard work.

"This years theme should be a big hit. Young people are passionate about the environment and once again we expect record entries and some intense competition for the top prizes."

Each year over 1000 entrants take part and this year the competition is open to pupils in four age categories:

  • Mini Monets (4-7)
  • Potential Picassos (8-11)
  • Dazzling Da Vincis (12-14)
  • Wannabe Warhols (15 & 16)

Up to 15 entries will be shortlisted in each category. The winners in each category will each receive a Kindle Fire, with a digital camera being awarded to the runners up and an iPod Nano for the third placed entrants. All the shortlisted entrants will have their work showcased at an exhibition held at Manchesters Museum of Science and Industry on Friday 13th March 2015 where the winners will be announced.

All the first placed winners schools will also receive a contribution towards art supplies and be given one years free subscription to QuickCall, Browne Jacobsons legal helpline service.
