iPod prize for young artists

Northumberland County Council are offering an iPod as a prize to young artists who will create an original piece of art that tell the viewer what ‘respect’ means to them. The ages of the contestants can be anywhere between 9 and 16.

Finalist will be chosen from their entry pieces and a live final will be held where the young artists will have to produce their design on a giant billboard. There are three age categories and there will be one winner from each age group. The iPod prizes are being donated by the Specialist Computer Centre (SCC) who are working in partnership with the council.

The event is part of a larger programme being operated across Northumberland which is called, ‘RESPECT.’ The winners pieces of art will be used as backdrops for this initiative. The original pieces will be kept on display at the councils public protection centre located in Morpeth.

The RESPECT initiative is an ongoing project to promote respect for each other and fellow citizens. It is targetted towards school age children. This project will allow for children to openly interpret what the word means to them. A representative from the County Council has said that they are very much looking forward to seeing what some of the young people design. Applications should be submitted on A3 paper with an application form that can be downloaded from the councils website.
