Every Story Tells a Picture – Teen artists put a new spin on books

The winners of the Every Story Tells A Picture competition have been announced, and they’ve been awarded some pretty tasty prizes.  The judges and organisers were highly impressed with the quality of the works entered, and would like to thank all the entrants for their hard work.

The Every Story Tells a Picture exhibition is on at Upper Riccarton Library from Monday 17th August. All are eligible for the People’s Choice award (a $50 Westfield voucher) – if you go and have a look, why not cast a vote. The winner will be announced on Monday 24 August.

Here’s a few of the winners and highly commended entries that caught my eye:
