2016 Guernsey Students Prize Winners Announced and New Arts Bursary Launched

The award ceremony for the 2016 Sovereign Art Foundation Guernsey Students Prize was held at St James Concert Hall on Thursday September 29, 2016, with a fantastic turnout of over 100 people.

First place and a prize of £500 went to Brittany Chippendale with her emotive photographic work Bittersweet. Sophie Taylor came in second place, winning £250 for her photograph Isolated Anger. Both Brittany and Sophie were from Guernsey Grammar School & Sixth Form Centre, who were awarded a grand total of £3,000. Amy Ryan won third prize and took home £100 for her work The Lion Behind the Man, with £500 being awarded her school, La Mare De Carteret High School.

It was a fantastic event and we are so grateful to everyone who came along to show their support.

Now in its second year, The Sovereign Art Foundation Guernsey Students Prize is coming on strength by strength and on the back of this we have launched a new bursary designed to support aspiring young artists in Guernsey, to be awarded annually to a selected student. Read more about this here.

Proceeds from the sales of the above will be split evenly between the Sovereign Art Foundation and the new arts bursary.
