The Living Edge Schools Art Competition provides us with an opportunity to witness and celebrate some of the best young creative talent in Cheshire.

We are always impressed by the skill and commitment to excellence of the young artists who enter our annual competition - and 2017 is no exception.

It is truly wonderful to be able to give our schools’ pupils the recognition they deserve, for their talent and dedication is incredible, whether or not they have dreams of pursuing a career in the creative arts.

Once again the decision as to who wins in each category is down to our panel of judges. We must give thanks to: Geoffrey Key, one of the North-West’s leading artists; Martin Heaps from Collect Art in Lymm; Anna Halliwell and Hilary Dean from competition sponsor, Jones Homes; and Trevor and Susan Walker from co-sponsors Fred Aldous, Manchester’s iconic art materials retailer. They will make their decisions on March 4, when the artwork shown in the next four pages will be displayed in the Hexagon Room at the Lowry Arts Centre at Salford Quays.

Our winners will be showcased in April’s Living Edge, when I hope that you will agree with our choices!
