What happened last year?
In the 2008/09 academic year, we received 1,639 entries. Young people from all walks of life across England, Scotland and Wales submitted art work that tells their story: who they are, what they think, their hopes and fears, aims and ambitions. The standard of the work, both technically and creatively, was very high. In May 2009 we announced the top 100 shortlisted entries which were put to our impressive panel of judges from the world of arts, media and education. The judges selected the most creative, thought-provoking and engaging submissions which make up our 10 winners.
The judges were very impressed with the quality and content of the entries, all of which provide an insightful and inspiring description of what is like to be young and British today.
"I think Young Brits at Art really represents what Britain is at its best. What I have seen is a wonderful vision of a country I'm really proud of"
"Every young artist should be really proud of themselves. They have taught all the judges something new about Britain"
