Kudos to all the young one who’ve won and we hope we can count on them for the book cover design component of Wadadli Pen 2014. Here’s the full press release announcing those winners:
Art At The Ridge is pleased to announce the winners of the island’s 2013 children’s Christmas card competition. This long-running and popular annual art competition is open to all schools in Antigua & Barbuda. Artwork is judged in six age categories, ranging from ages 7 to 19.
As always, this competition showcases the high standard of our island’s artistic talents from a very young age. Some earlier winners have since gone on to join the island’s well-known and thriving art community. Antigua & Barbuda is a visual arts hotspot in the region and earlier this year Art At The Ridge was listed in The Culture Trip’s Top Ten Best Art Galleries in the Caribbean.
The winning Christmas cards will shortly be on sale at Art At The Ridge and other venues around the island.
