Create a Fruit & Veg Masterpiece Art Competition for 2013

Primary school children across Kent are being invited to show off their artistic talents in this exciting Art Competition. Produced in Kent is inviting all primary school children (in Year R to Year 6) to create a picture that represents Kent’s Food or Farming. The only limit is their imagination!

The 2013 competition has been made a reality this year by the generous sponsorship of local companies and Produced in Kent’s manager Ed Martin, was quick to thank them all. “Passing on the important message of eating locally grown and seasonal produce to the next generation via such a fun competition is down to the continued support of our sponsors R J Kingsland, abm catering, Hadlow College and Kent Life. We are incredibly grateful to them for helping us. Create a Fruit & Veg Masterpiece really does introduce young people to the wonders of the ‘Garden of England’ in an enjoyable and creative way.”

Children taking part in the novel and educational art competition are challenged to only use in season fruit and vegetables grown in the ‘Garden of England’ during the early summer in the making of their masterpiece and competitors simply need to take a photo of their picture and get it into the judges at events@producedinkent.co.uk before the deadline of MONDAY 10th JUNE.

Schools, after school allotment clubs, Cubs, Brownies and Sunday schools, can enter individually or in groups and the three best entries in each category will be invited to a live final to be held at Broadview Gardens on Friday 5th July.

The children will recreate their fruit and veg masterpiece under the watchful eyes of the judges before enjoying a celebratory afternoon tea prepared by abm catering. Leading the judges will be renowned Tonbridge sculptor Guy Portelli, who is looking forward to casting an expert eye over the children’s creations.

Finalists will be awarded a bumper selection of prizes including a framed foodscape picture, art materials and bumper gardening goodies from Broadview Garden Centre to encourage children to continue to grow their own.
Competition posters and entry details have been circulated to every primary school in the county at the start of the summer term. Full entry details can also be found on the Produced in Kent website – visit producedinkent.co.uk.
