Living Options Devon ran a summer nature-themed art competition.
As part of our strategy to support your wellbeing, we launched a summer nature art competition. We asked people to create any type of flat artwork that represents nature, ideally focussing on the nature of Devon. They could choose to draw, paint, or use digital media like tablet artwork. They could choose any subject, a landscape, seascape, wildlife, or any other natural subject. We asked that their artwork includes our Living Options Devon colours of yellow and blue somewhere in your work.
We hoped this competition would encourage artistic people across Devon to get outside in our beautiful countryside and relax by creating amazing artwork.
Thank you to MAKE South West and Dartmouth Steam Railway & Riverboat Company as they donated us some wonderful prizes. The winning prize was a family ticket on the Dartmouth Steam Railway and the runner up prize was a crafting goodie bag.
In September we began the judging process, we had a local artist Kate Aggett and MAKE South West as our judges. We got together and chose two fantastic paintings which we deemed worthy of the 1st and 2nd prize.

We want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all of the wonderful entries we received. We have really enjoyed seeing all of your beautiful art work.
Watch this space for more competitions in the future.
