Highly Commended in Shakespeare Portrait Competition

Many congratulations to our Year 3, Year 4 and Year 6 artists who took part in the Shakespeare Portrait Competition in celebration of Shakespeare Week. With over 2,500 enties, the judges (Children’s illustrator Korky Paul, Marcia Williams and CBBC’s Art Ninja as well as the Chief Executive of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust) were bowled over by the quality of the children’s response.
Heritage’s overall entry was awarded a Highly Commended with special note to Ruben E (Y6) Amelie B (Y3) and Mark B (Y3) for being shortlisted through to the final stages of judging. Luke B (Y7) also deserves special congratulations for his portrait which was individually Highly Commended by the judges.
Winning entries of the competition are on display at the online exhibition:
