Prize vouchers are on their way to the winners, along with many congratulations.  Thanks to all who took part, from the Committee.

Rob Howard, our judge, said, "It was a great privilege and pleasure to judge the Laide Wood Art Competition. There was excellent work among the best pictures. The subject ‘water lilies’ was difficult and needed both considered draughtsmanship and a bravado approach. In judging I was looking for an obvious celebration of the arresting qualities of the theme with the painter choosing a style that made for a striking and individual interpretation."

Our thanks to Rob from the Solas Gallery in Gairloch, for taking the time out to help make the competition a big success.

Images of the winning entries will appear on this site shortly, and there will be an exhibition of the winning entries in the new year - watch this space.
