Winners announced – Inspirations: Poetry & Creative Writing Competition

Winners announced – Inspirations: Poetry & Creative Writing Competition

The Atkinson, in partnership with The Arts Society Southport invited anyone with links to the Sefton Borough to take part in a new poetry and creative writing competition.

The past year has taught us to appreciate the landscape on our doorstep and explore Great Britain with staycations. The competition entries responded to artworks featuring in an upcoming exhibition at The Atkinson, Natural High (19 June 2021 – 19 March 2022), contemplating our current situation, memories of past holidays and dreams for the future

Curated from The Atkinson’s fine art collection, Natural High, explores the wonderful scenery of Great Britain. The exhibition themes are The Lake District, Scotland, Wales, Pastoral Scenes and The Coast.

The competition winners are awarded prizes donated by The Arts Society Southport.  The winning entries will also be displayed alongside the Natural High exhibition. Prizes were awarded by the judges based on entries received, therefore a different number of places were awarded in each age category to reflect this.
