After much deliberation and hours of independent judging, artist, Louise Pasquill, has chosen the winners of this year’s OHC&AT Christmas card competition.
First place for Primary entries went to William, age 7 at Dysart School and first place for Secondary artwork was awarded to Raphael, age 12 from Carew Academy.
Louise said of Williams entry: “William had created a beautiful entry with his simple effective design. The message he sends us at Christmas is clear and sends a feeling of community, love and celebration with his vibrant colours. The golden dove has a luxurious shimmer and looks striking against the blue starry sky. Congratulations William!”
Louise’s appraisal of Raphael’s artwork is as follows: “Raphael is clearly an accomplished artist. There are many clever and thoughtful elements in this design. Raphael has created great depth of space, the silhouettes show movement, the blending technique of the colours and the palette are skilful and reflect the Northern Lights. It’s Outstanding, Congratulations Raphael.”
William and Raphael will both receive an Amazon voucher, a framed certificate and a set of Christmas cards printed with their festive design.
Louise also awarded four runners up prizes to Dylan at Brantridge School, Rui at Unified Academy, Reece at Grafham Grange and Thomas at The Link School – they will all receive a certificate.
A huge thank you to pupils and students who took part in our competition, it brings so much joy to the staff at Quadrant House who enjoy looking at the artwork in their reception area.
