Well done to Imaan who scooped first prize in the annual Christmas Card competition organised for pupils by Orchard Hill College & Academy Trust. You can view Imaan’s winning entry above.
There are well over 2000 pupils attending academies across the Trust and every year there are hundreds of entries for the judge to choose from. But after much deliberation Louise Pasquill, an Art Educator and Illustrator who is independent from the Trust, chose Imaan’s entry saying:
“This bold, cheeky Christmas portrait of a young lady giving the viewer a festive wink in her Christmas outfit of a scalloped matching twinset with pompoms, is striking. The designer has considered the diagonal foreshortened composition for maximum impact and the limited palette works brilliantly and sends a warm message of Christmas cheer, the blue eye standing out. The graphic style with foreground and lettering fills the space and has been finished to an exceptional standard. Congratulations.
Imaan will receive an Amazon voucher, framed certificate and a box of Christmas cards printed with her festive design.
Congratulations to Iris whose Christmas Card entry featuring a jolly snowman was awarded a Highly Commended certificate.
Merry Christmas from everyone at The Skills Hub!
