Marriotts art competition

Secondary school age students are reminded that it is now their turn to help brighten up the large hoardings surrounding the Marriotts Close development site in Witney. Students are invited to send in their artwork and short listed entries will be enlarged and exhibited on public display.

The closing date is 22 October 2008.

The theme is 'West Oxfordshire life', which can be interpreted broadly to give as much freedom as possible. For example it can be

  • looking back, present day or futuristic;
  • a favourite building(s) or place(s) in the district;
  • a vision of the new development or one of its features which includes a multi-screen cinema, shops, restaurants, parking, a recreational area and homes.


Details, including how to enter, are on the Council's website: www.westoxon.gov.uk and are with all secondary school art teachers.

A competition for primary school age children has already taken place.

Cllr Jill Dunsmore, Cabinet Member for Communities was one of the judges and she said, “There was a fantastic response from the primary schools and selecting the best ones was very difficult. I’d like to thank the children who took part as they all put in such a lot of work. I am looking forward to seeing the entries for the 11 to 18 category.”

In addition to having artwork on public display, the Simons Group is donating a cash prize to each primary and secondary school category winner as well as an individual prize.
