Congratulations to the latest winners of our Mindstretcher competitions, who will each receive a £100 Amazon gift voucher.
Shayna Cooke won the movie poster competition for her design depicting Tim Burton’s ‘The Corpse Bride’. Judge, Leanne Brownbill, Head of Media and Film said: ‘This poster is very artistically done with a good interpretation of the film and its characters embedded into the poster. Well done Shayna!’
Katie Rennie was chosen as the winner of the ‘Happy Photo’ competition for her striking image taken in the Ribble Valley on a family walk. Judge, Stefan Isaacson, Head of Art, commented: ‘I am picking Katie’s piece for it’s still sense of optimism, you can feel the fresh air in your lungs. Well done Katie!’
Last but not least, William Newton was crowned winner of the #TakeTheKnee competition. William’s piece, entitled ‘Discussion leads to change: so why can’t we have a proper discussion around racism’ caught the eye of judge and Head of English Julie Dale. She said: ‘William’s piece is very ambitious. The sustained metaphor of the virus and its parallels to human behaviour are very well judged and insightful. The level of research is really impressive. Above all, this piece feels like a piece of journalism. It is thought provoking and presents solutions as well as problems. It is impassioned without being didactic. A really mature piece of writing.’
Thank you to everyone who entered and keep your eye out for more MIndstretcher competitions coming soon.
