Climate Change Art Competition Winners

Mon 27 Jun 2016

The E.Y.E Project invited pupils from schools attending the Eco Summit to draw/paint their own impressions of Climate Change and/or its effects.

E.Y.E. Project ‘Member schools’ were automatically entered into a competition with prizes for  * Best ‘Member’ Primary school  and * Best ‘Member’ Secondary school. Both of these winning schools would receive £125 to be used towards eco initiative within their schools.

Non-member schools were also invited to send their art work for the display and these entries were also considered in a Highly Commended category.

We received many impressive entries and following consideration by the judging panel which included the Ropetackle Arts Centre, Shoreham Port Authority and two E.Y.E. Project Committee members, the winning entries were chosen and then announced at the Eco Summit event on Tuesday 21st June 2016 at Davison CE High School for Girls.

The winning E.Y.E. Project ‘member’ Secondary school was Chatsmore Catholic High School with an impressive and moving piece of art from a year 8 pupil.

The Winning E.Y.E. Project ‘member’ Primary school was Thomas a Becket Junior School with joint collaboration by two pupils from year 6.

Due to the quality of the artwork and its clear Climate Change message there was a Non-member entry that we felt also deserved a prize and this award was given to another collaborative piece of work by two year 5 pupils at Eastbrook Primary Academy.

As well as the £125 prize for each of the two winning 'member' schools, each of the 5 pupils who created the artwork received a pack of art supplies and winners certificates.

There were also three Highly commended certificates given to pupils from Thomas a Becket Primary school, St Nicholas & St Mary CE Primary, and Chatsmore Catholic High.

Thank you to all schools and pupils who submitted artwork. Thanks also to:

•Ropetackle Arts Centre for supporting the competition
•Shoreham Port Authority for sponsoring the competition
 
We are pleased to announce that Ropetackle Arts Centre have kindly offered to host an exhibition of the Climate Change artwork in October. Further details to follow.
