Children’s Art Competition 2013

‘The Big Catch!’ by Hugo Steel, winner 12-16yr category

A Royal Tea Party by Keira Beardworth, winner Under 6yrs category

Monday 24th June saw the start of Seafarers Awareness Week and the finals of our Children’s Art Competition 2013.   Seafarers Awareness Week is an annual event to promote the essential work done by seafarers to keep our island nation supplied with fuel, food and goods.  We chose the theme of Fish for Tea this year to highlight the work still done today by our Royal Navy in helping to bring food to our table.  Our theme was endorsed by Jamie Oliver this year who said:

“The Royal Navy & Royal Marines Children’s Fund art competition is a brilliant way to inspire kids to get into art and learn about beautiful, fresh fish, where it comes from and why it’s so good for them – it’s a brilliant competition and I’m excited to see the winning pictures.”  Jamie Oliver

A prize-giving and tea party was held at the Royal Maritime Club in Portsmouth for our finalists – many of whom had come from all over Portsmouth and Hampshire and indeed beyond.  Sadly some of our entries came from so far away they were unable to attend.  We had entries from Kent, Glasgow, Humberside, the Isle of Islay and even Sri Lanka and Macedonia!

After the difficult task of shortlisting from the hundreds of entries received our judges then had the almost impossible task of choosing the winners.   After much deliberation and discussion and a few disagreements they finally managed to make a decision and Prize Giving could begin.  Our thanks go to our wonderful judges – Dan Gover and Hannah Green from Jamie’s Italian in Portsmouth represented Jamie Oliver, Major Phil Packer MBE who is one of our Champions and has his own charity BRIT (The British Inspiration Trust) which supports disadvantaged children and links with many other children’s charities including the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Children’s Fund, Lt Commander Alexandra Sard MBE representing Seafarers UK and Philippa Gogarty, director of Micro-Scooters UK who have supported our Art Competition for the past three years providing their wonderful scooters as our first prizes in each category.
