De La Frontera - ~Young Artists Competition - 2014


And the winner is ... breath was held and fingers crossed as this year’s Young Artists’ competition reached its grand finale on the evening of Friday March 21st. I don’t know how many of you managed to get down to see the public exhibition, or took a peek at the works on our web-site, but the talented youth of the San Roque area once again did themselves proud. We had 30 outstanding works submitted by the participating schools making the job of judging as difficult as ever.

The Main Prize and the Sovereign sponsored Members’ Prize were close run things, but in the end decisions were made and winners chosen.

It was with a great buzz of excitement that the 500€ Main prize went to 16 year old Yeison Giraldo Valencia from IES Mar del Sur with his fabulous and evocative ‘pointillism’ piece 'Una Tarde en la Mar', while the Sovereign Group sponsored 150€ Members' Prize went to 15 year old Nazaret Lopez Sanchez from IES Carlos Castilla del Pino with her scarily accurate but beautifully executed 'Araña'.
