YOUNG PEOPLE across Bromsgrove certainly took their opportunities to show off their creative talents by participating in arguably the biggest art competition the town has seen.

Go Create was organised by Artrix Outreach, in partnership with six of the Worcestershire County Councillors who represent Bromsgrove divisions - Sheila Blagg, June Griffiths, Kit Taylor and Anthony Blagg, Emma Moffett and Maddie Bunker.

The contest, which was on the theme 'Here I am' and was open to those aged between four and 25, had several categories for submitted work, including Visual Arts, Film, Animation and Photography. Each one had different age sections.

Prizes ranged from Artrix vouchers to boxes of Hobbycraft art materials, digital cameras and animation software.

Among the entries were a Lego animation featuring Bromsgrove landmarks, self portraits and photos of the local environment.

In the film category, first prizes were awarded to Catherine Berrow, Thomas Elliot and Naomi Pugh.

The animation section was won by Noah Swainland, Matthew Vivian and Michael Townsend.

The first prizes in the photography section went to Benjamin Harvey Catherine Berrow, Abbie Pinfield and Amy Rance.

And in Visual Arts, they were scooped by Charles Berrow, Eden Peppercorn, Emily Watkins, Michael Day and Naomi Pugh.

Go Create! co-ordinator TC Peppercorn said: "The judges were overwhelmed by the quality of the work submitted and delighted by the looks on the winners’ faces as they came to get their prizes.

"All were very well-deserved.

"It was great for Artrix to work in partnership with Bromsgrove’s councillors on this and I look forward to seeing the competition continue in future years."

She added it was hoped the Go Create! concept would continue through after-school creative workshops and courses for young people in schools around Bromsgrove.
