Carolyn Edwards, Children and Youth Adviser, writes;
We were delighted with the standard and variety of the hundreds of entries that we had for the Children of Light Art Competition competition. It was a hard day’s work deciding on the winners as there were so many fabulous pieces of art to choose from.
We want to take this opportunity to thank the Deanery Champions, church leaders and schools who organised local competitions for all their hard work. We would also like to thank our judging panel guests: Artist Ange How, Graphic Designer Mark Comer, and Youth Worker Helen Cross, for their time and expertise. But most importantly we want to thank all the children and young people who shared so much creativity to help all of us think about what it means to be light in dark times.
Those winning first, second and third place listed below will be invited to afternoon tea with the Archbishop of York, at Bishopthorpe Palace on Saturday 9th October, where they will be presented with their prizes. It is also hoped that there will be a travelling exhibition of all the shortlisted pieces in the Autumn. If your church would like to host the exhibition, please get in touch with Carolyn Edwards
