Every Story Tells a Picture - The Winners

The winners of the Every Story Tells A Picture competition have been announced!  Three entrants each received a $100 Westfield voucher for winning their category, and a further six entrants each received a $50 Westfield voucher for being highly commended.

The judges and organisers were really impressed with the quality of the works entered, and would like to thank all the entrants for their hard work.

The winning entries, along with a further 25 entries, will be exhibited at Upper Riccarton Library from Monday 17th August. All of the entries in the exhibition are eligible for the People’s Choice award (a $50 Westfield voucher) - which will be announced on Monday 24th August.

We’re expecting lots of interest in the exhibition, with friends and whānau taking the chance to see the students’ work. The quality of some of the works is outstanding, a real testament to the talented artists we have in our Christchurch schools. Come along and have a look, and vote for your favourite!
