We’ve been overwhelmed with the quality and quantity of entries that we received into our art competition. We set a theme of “Talking is for now, writing is forever” and asked for pen and paper interpretations of it. The diversity of ideas was astounding and it was amazing to see the creativity and thought given to each entry.
With the high standard of entries it proved incredibly difficult to decide on the top design from each category, but after much deliberation we can finally announce the winners!
Winner – Over 16’s
Tony really captured the essence of what it means to put thoughts to writing. For his outstanding artwork, Tony wins our Over 16’s prize bundle.
Winner – 11-16’s
A really expressive piece from Adeen which stood out by evoking memories of sketching away in the back of a school exercise book. Definitely worthy of our 11-16’s prize bundle.
Winner – Under 11’s
April’s picture was chosen as the winner in this hard-fought category partly because of the interpretation of the theme, partly because of the aspiration of the character and partly because of the cute cat. Hopefully April can carry on with her drawing and writing as the winner of our Under 11’s bundle.
We’d like to extend our thanks to everyone that entered the competition. You really got into the spirit of National Stationery Week and every single artwork was appreciated. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed (@ThePenShop) for more activities and prize opportunities in the future!
