This Autumn I was asked to judge Southwark Libraries’ Graphic Art Competition for the second year. This is a wonderful job and consists of working through the many entries for three age categories to choose a winner, runner up and an entry that deserves a special mention. The competition really inspires young people and gives them something engaging to do over the summer holidays. The entries were diverse and wonderful.
At the awards ceremony in Southwark’s Culture Space, which resides in the fabulous Canada Water Library, I led a Record Breakers comics and GN workshop which tied in with the Summer Reading Challenge. There is such a lovely family atmosphere at these awards, that I always try to get everyone involved in drawing, including grandparents and younger siblings. It was great fun walking round to see the characters that were created.
I was able to meet all the entrants and their families – it was a pleasure to talk about the artwork and to encourage young people to continue in a creative direction. The awards were given out by Deputy Leader of the Council, Councillor Wingfield.
