Compass Point Art Competition Recognises Local Talent

Compass Point Art Competition Winners Unveiled!

In a gathering that celebrated creativity and local talent, the Compass Point Art Competition recently unveiled its winners, showcasing the diverse artistic expressions within our community.

The competition attracted a remarkable 250 submissions, each reflecting a level of quality that made the judging process an engaging challenge. Mayor Mike Dawe and Cllr Peter La Broy invested considerable time in carefully considering each entry before selecting the winners.

The competition was organised into distinct age categories, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards for each group. All winners were presented with art materials valued at over £25, alongside certificates acknowledging their commendable achievements. For those securing 1st and 2nd place, cash prizes added an extra layer of recognition for their outstanding work.

One artist stood out in particular. Luca Tyrell was crowned the overall winner and received a limited-edition print of the original architect’s drawing of the Storm Tower—a fitting acknowledgment for his fantastic entry.

This event not only celebrated the artistic talents within our community but also emphasised the ongoing preservation efforts related to the Storm Tower, an essential part of our local history.

Our sincere appreciation goes out to everyone who joined us for this special occasion. We hope you enjoyed the event, including the cake, which added to the warmth and camaraderie of the day.
