Junior Painter of the Year awards winners, 2009
The Sightsavers Junior painter of the Year 12 regional winners have been chosen. Over 2,400 children from around the country sent in entries of the ‘Sight I Would Most Like To See.’
As you can imagine it was incredibly difficult to choose the final twelve out of the 2,400 entries. I loved seeing all the different styles and themes that you explored. Each regional winner received a selection of my books from Walker Books, along with a €100 Easons Voucher.
Do come along to come along to see the final winning paintings. They will be displayed at an exhibition in Airfield House, Dundrum opening on the 10th February 2010. The Overall Category Winners will be announced the day before. The 4 National Category Winners will also receive a €250 Eason’s voucher which I hope they will spend on art supplies and books of course!
