Coruña British International School student, winner of the Sculpture and 3D art category of the Globeducate Visual Arts Competition.
The Globeducate Arts Competition has become a highlight of the academic year, launching in June each summer term, submissions finalised in November, and judging completed in time for Christmas. The 2023 competition saw more than 2,100 students submit entries, and over 200 pieces were referred through to the Globeducate judging panel. The awards were organised around four age groups: 5 to 7 years old, 8 to 10 years old, 11 to 14 years old and 15 to 18 years old, with artists, writers, poets, dancers, actors, photographers, sculptors and crafters.
We would like to congratulate all the winning pieces this year, but especially our pupil Anne Galindez, from Lower Primary, for winning first prize for Sculpture and 3D art in the 5 to 7 years of age category. She said: “I was very happy to be the winner of the Art competition and so were my mum and dad! They said they were very proud of me. I love the Tower of Hercules and it reflects lots of light in the sea”.
This year´s theme was "Reflections" and it was up to students to decide on how to interpret the theme and how they would like to express it. The theme was broad to allow artists to interpret it as they wished, yet also with the focus of aligning with our Globeducate mission.
Dominic Abbott, Head of School said: “What a fantastic opportunity for our talented students to showcase their creativity within the Globeducate community! The joy of crafting artwork and poetry writing was evident with their enthusiasm soaring in anticipation for the announcement of the prizes. The excitement reached its peak when we revealed we had a winner – beaming with pride at being chosen. It was a magical moment for the winner to shine in front of her peers during the assembly.
Maria Herrera, CBIS Globeducate Art competition coordinator, said: “The 2023 Art competition at CBIS was a great success. The children participated with enthusiasm and the projects in general displayed high standards of excellence and talent. Anne’s production, in particular, was a good example of this. She represented the theme “Reflection” in a very creative way using a variety of colours and materials. Furthermore, she integrated the theme into our environment by choosing the city’s most famous landmark. It is definitely a brilliant work of art”.
