Young Artist of the Year Competition

The Sefton Young Artist of The Year competition was developed to help discover the next generation of artists in our  creative borough.  The Atkinson in partnership with The Arts Society Southport invited Young Artists aged 11-18 living in the Sefton Borough to submit one photograph of an original artwork to the competition, exhibited on The Atkinson’s website.  With over 120 entries received, the competition showcases the emerging talent in Sefton across a variety of artistic practices.

The competition winners were announced on Thursday 28 May and awarded prizes donated by The Arts Society Southport.
