INTRODUCING THE BIC KIDS YOUNG ARTIST AWARD 2018 WINNER
Ayesha Taniya, 11, Wales
Ayesha Taniya's artwork will be displayed on billboards across the country between 24th September and 7th October.
Illustrator and judge, Phil Corbett, said: "We’re thrilled to announce 11-year-old Ayesha Taniya from Newport, Wales, as our overall champion. Her macaw drawing is technically outstanding. The bird itself is so vibrant and realistic but the background is also extremely well put together. The fact that Ayesha was also a winner last year shows that she really does have huge amounts of artistic skill."
"We hope the billboards being created with Ayesha’s artwork inspire her to keep on drawing – she certainly has a natural talent for it which we hope she continues to explore."
Congratulations to everyone who entered this year’s competition and thanks for making it bigger and better than ever!
