And the Results are in……..

For the Little Chalkers National Children’s Pavement Art Competition……..

Well it’s been exactly one week since The James Carling Event and finally I’m starting to feel the return of a new sense of energy after the physical and emotional drain of the past three weeks……having to organise two massive events at the same time is a killer…….anybody who has organised stuff knows the amount of unseen and often unpaid work that goes into these things.

The main thing was that both events; LIVERPOOL RESURGENT and the JAMES CARLING comp where both a massive success enjoyed by thousands of people in the late September sunshine.

I’ve uploaded more photos of the JAMES CARLING EVENT here……..I’ll be blogging and uploading photos of Liverpool Resurgent next week!

In the meantime here are the results of the Little Chalkers Children’s Pavement Art Competition as chosen by ourselves…….. professional street artists Catherine McMahon & Philip Battle UrbanCanvas

Little Chalkers Competition

'Rainbow with Birds' by Little Chalker: LORAN MORRIS aged 8 seen here posing with her masterpiece! (the one with orange hands!!!)

In total we had 48 children enter…..it was so popular that we ran out of space and nearly lost our mind trying to keep track of things, we had to close the competition early to photograph works etc…..next year I think we will have to employ a team of people just to run this competition alone!!  

The James Carling competition this year went above and beyond our expectations…..with thousands of visitors, all in a good mood and spirit and generously donating pound coins to their favourite artists…..

German artist Heike Brinkman told us of the tale when There was this tiny tot, Liverpulian who gave all his pocket money into my caddy box….with a big generous smile…how sweet of him. I’ll keep it as a memento of the wonderful time I had in Liverpool.”

I’m sure there where many tales like that throughout the day

A crowd of people watching Manchester artist Christine Edwards at work on her Masterpiece!

Congratulations to all the winners….the standard was soooo high this year that I’m sure the judges had a very difficult task in picking the winners.  Although the winners of the People’s prize seems to have matched our judges choice as well showing that the people of Liverpool know a thing or two about art 😉
