Creative Bishop's Stortford College GCSE art students impress judges from estate agent Savills




Young artists at Bishop's Stortford College have been recognised for their creative flair.

Annual prizes were awarded to upper fifth pupils for their GCSE work during this year's virtual final assembly.

The entries were judged by Justin Godfrey, head of office at Savills estate agent in North Street, Bishop's Stortford, and his colleague Simone Berney.

Justin said: "We've been sponsoring the awards for several years and I'm always hugely impressed by the quality of artwork on display. This year was obviously a little different because we had to judge everything virtually, but the standard of work just gets better and better. It's always so hard to pick our favourites."

First prize of a £75 arts voucher was awarded to Libby H for her hand-thrown, carved and formed ceramic sculpture – described by judges as an amazing use of colour, texture and flow that they would be proud to have on their bookcase at home.

Second prize of a £50 arts voucher went to Sadie J for her oil painting on canvas which judges praised for its "pronounced feeling of floating".

Third prize of a £25 arts voucher was given to Elise C for her digital recording, photography and Photoshop artwork which judges said was "a great digital piece that would look at home anywhere".

Charlotte Munck, senior school head of art at the college, said: "We would like to thank Savills for their generous and continued support of these prizes and congratulate all the upper fifth artists for their hard work this year."
