A group of six judges; Val Braithwaite from Bloomsbury Publishing, Rev Simon Springett from Aggie’s, Elaine Boorman and Hattie Gordon from Reading Force, Jo Scrivener from Starfish Design and Helen Mason from In Silent Service, met in London last week to pick the winners from the many entries for this years art competition.
The theme this year was ‘Favourite Book Character’ and it certainly sparked the imagination of the children. The many entries were narrowed down to a shortlist of 46 spread over five age categories. Judging was tough and in many of the categories the judges could not agree so more than one prize was given. Here are the results in order of Age Groups….
