Art Show Promotes London’s Young Talent
October 17, 2011 by Chloe
An upcoming art competition is giving young artists the opportunity to both showcase their talent and win a scholarship to pursue creative education. The competition, which will be exhibited on November 10 at the London Convention Centre, will give secondary students in London the opportunity to express their talents through paint, multi-media design, sculpture and photography.
The theme of this year’s competition is “Homelessness and Poverty” as decided by the Mission Services of London and the Hazel Cryderman-Wees Foundation, who are sponsoring the event and will be judging art pieces. The exhibition gives students a great opportunity to demonstrate a social issue in their own community through emotional and striking art. The exhibition is also a celebration of print and all artistic forms of art.
The works of art will be open for public viewing and printers and representatives of print companies interested in striking and meaningful artwork are welcome to attend. One of the judges on the panel is Robin Honey, president of Honey Design, a graphic designs company involved in branding and strategic communications.
Unique art pieces, like those submitted to the November 10 Mission Services of London Competition, can become integrated into mainstream print and become the focal points of poster printings or flyers and brochures to raise awareness about social issues.
Winners can expect a $1,000 scholarship and smaller $200 cash prizes in addition to the priceless display and praise of exceptional talent whilst portraying an important social issue in the London community.
