Now in its second year, the competition attracted over 500 entries from kids around South Africa. It encouraged readers to showcase their artistic talents and inspire other kids to explore their creative potential. Kids aged five to fourteen were invited to submit their entries in the following categories: Drawing and Painting, Collage or Mixed Media and 3-D Sculpture.
"It’s clear our readers enjoy engaging with NG KIDS
’ fun, interactive and educational series of Young Competitions,” says editor, Fiona Thomson. “Judging the Young Artists finalists’ artwork was definitely a challenge, but the creative savvy of our winners shone through.”
The nine winners each got prizes from Bostik and Ster Kinekor Entertainment which include a Bostik Art Bag filled with Bostik-inspired art supplies, a Wii console and a uDraw Game Tablet with game software.
