Rotary Young Artist Competition

Sun, Feb 28th 2021 at 10:00 am- Sun, Mar 14th 2021 - 12:00 pm

Entries for the Young Artist competition were judged on Monday March 1st. See below for results.


Rotary Club of Buxton encourage young artists.

Following local success in last years Rotary Youth Competitions when Young Chefs, Environmentalists and Photographers made it through to Regional and National finals, the baton has been taken up this year by budding young artists.

The local Buxton heat of the National Rotary Young Artist Competition attracted entries from local schools, Burbage Primary and Harpur Hill Primary.

With the encouragement of their teachers, the children, many of whom have been working from home due to COVID-19 restrictions, created artwork on the theme of ‘Wild Nature’.

Our judges, artists Susan Eversfield and Jo Spencer, both of whom regularly exhibit their work at the Green Man Gallery, assessed against the criteria of technical merit, content, composition, style, and imagination and were extremely impressed by the quality and originality of the works.

The judges awarded the top prize to Ollie White of Burbage Primary school with runners-up prizes going to Ellis Hutchinson from Harpur Hill and Nancy Pilkington from Burbage.  William McKenzie and Emily Wentworth from Harpur Hill  were also highly commended. The winner and runners up will go forward to the Rotary District heat and maybe even to the National Final. Here’s hoping. 

Buxton Rotary Club would like to thank our judges; the teachers, Charlotte Rushworth and Diane Williamson of Harpur Hill Primary School and Sarah Walker of Burbage Primary School, but most of all, the children who took part.
