Ridge Hosts Christmas Card Competition

Art at the RidgeAntigua St John's - Art At The Ridge is inviting entries for its 2011 Christmas Card Competition for schoolchildren (aged 7 to 19) in Antigua & Barbuda.  Bank of Antigua started this event several years ago, and it ran very successfully, highlighting the abundance of creative talent among the island’s children and young people.

Some of the artwork produced has been of such accomplished quality that it seems amazing to realize these are not already well-known artists. 

When Bank of Antigua stopped holding the competition, the Museum of Antigua & Barbuda took up the mantle in 2009 and, last year, Island Academy held an in-house competition which again continued to showcase the wonderful creativity and imagination among youngsters.

Art At The Ridge is now also holding this competition, and all schools in Antigua & Barbuda are invited to submit entries from their students to Art At the Ridge (based at Sugar Ridge) by Friday, November 4.

Details are as follows:

Ridge Hosts Christmas Card Competition

my way of helping - please be assured that the judges won't know the name of the entrants as this will be written on the back of the artwork and will not be showing at the time of judging.
