What Makes You Smile? Glencree & Dublin City Council Young Artist Competition Winners Announced

28/5/21: The winners of the Glencree & Dublin City Council Young Artist Competition have been announced. The winners are: Senan Duignan, age 6;  Nachikambi Favour Nnaemeka, age 8;  Conor Curtin, age 11; and,  Chloe Curley, age 17. The judges also awarded two additional prizes for ‘exceptional creativity’ to Sarah O’Gorman, age 11 and Murray Sheehan, age 17.

 

 

In the spirit of celebrating #AfricaDay2021, Glencree Intercultural & Refugee Programme, in association with Dublin City Council, invited young artists to create an artwork inspired by What Makes you Smile?  Twenty five entries were shortlisted in the Young Artist Competition. These included submissions from the youngest entrants Thomas and Rian, aged 3, through a range of pastels, oils and a photographic entry. A compilation of the shortlisted artworks was displayed as part of Africa Day: Entanglements – Africa and Dublin City with keynote address by Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu and featuring representatives of the Irish African communities in Dublin.

The artworks were judged across 4 categories, 0 – 6 ; 7 – 9 ; 10 – 13; 14 – 17,  by a panel including Greg Osborne, Joe Odiboh and Nadette Foley. In making their decision, the judges focused on artistic skill, creative expression, relevance to the theme of ‘What Makes You Smile?’ and overall impact.

The winner of each age category and the two ‘exceptional creativity’ artists will receive a One4all Gift Voucher to the value of Euro25. Chloe Curley and Conor Curtin will also receive a book entitled ‘Frederick Douglas and Ireland: In his own words’ by Professor Christine Kinealy who spoke at the Africa Day event. The book details the four months that the famous abolitionist and escaped slave Frederick Douglas spent in Ireland in the 1840s, befriending Daniel O’Connell and other influential activists.
