CREATIVE youngsters from Bromsgrove have been rewarded after taking part in a major arts competition.

Organised by Artrix Outreach, the 2011 Go Create! competition was open to youngsters aged between four and 25-years-old.

The theme was Here I Am, and the young competitors were challenged to interpret this in their own creative ways in film, animation, photography, and the visual arts.

Among the youngsters creations were a Lego animation, featuring a number of Bromsgrove landmarks, and photos of the local environment.

A prizewinner’s ceremony was held at the Artrix, in School Drive, with the friends and families of the category winners invited along to celebrate.

Prizes, including vouchers, art materials and digital cameras, were given to the winners by county councilors Sheila Blagg, June Griffiths, Kit Taylor and Anthony Blagg.

A spokesman for Artrix Outreach said: “The judges were overwhelmed by the quality of the work submitted and delighted by the looks on the winners’ faces as they came to get their prizes.

“All were very well deserved.”

Organisers of Go Create! are now hoping to run the competition again this year, setting up new after-school workshops and courses for the participants.
