Supporting a new generation of Chiswick artists, local estate agent Bushells has joined together with Southfield School to sponsor a new year art competition.

Children from all age groups were invited to create a picture that depicted the spirit of New Year with a brief to be as creative as possible and use any medium of their choice.

The judges, made up from managers and directors from Bushells, considered entries from Reception (aged four and five) to Year 6 (aged 10 and 11). The winning entry (pictured right) is by Freya Cowan who was awarded a £75 voucher for Turnham Green Arts and Craft.

Second place was awarded to Sara Nisco who won a £50 voucher for Turnham Green Arts and Craft, third place went to Laura Piscetelli with a £25 voucher and fourth and fifth to Silvia Piscetelli and Asmita Rana respectively who both won £10 vouchers.

Southfield's other artists didn't miss out though because the school also received £200 towards their art department from Bushells.

Tim Dalby-Quenet, Manager of Bushells Chiswick said, "Having been active in the Chiswick area for more than 70 years, Bushells prides itself on its involvement with the local community. Our relationship with Southfield School is a great example of that commitment and one of our proudest associations.

"We so enjoy seeing the children inspired to explore their artistic talents through these competitions and we never cease to be amazed by the high standard of their entries. I think the quality of the New Year competition speaks for itself but we want to congratulate every child who took part - it is always a challenge to find a winner when standards are so high."
