'What’s On Your Plate?'

Winner - Ruskin Park Fun Day drawing competition ‘What’s On Your Plate?’ 

Our Ruskin Park Fun Day drawing competition ‘What’s On Your Plate?’ was highly popular attracting fifty submissions. Entrants were asked to draw (on recyclable white paper plate of course) what was on their minds and we received a wide variety of interpretations from a new baby to detailed ‘maps’ relating to school and family to the wishes and dreams of local children.

 Choosing the winner and two runners up was the difficult task of local comic book artist Bambos Georgiou who teaches and lectures on comic books and graphic novels. Bambos said “Taking everything into account, age, attention to the brief and the drawing itself the winning entry was by Ruby Nightingale”. Ruby has won cakes and tea for her family at Gerry’s Bakery on South Road. Bambos commented “As a comic book artist I particularly liked that Ruby had used a ‘thought bubble’ in her drawing. Well done Ruby!”
