The “Family Portrait” was a competition for students from Polish Saturday Schools organised by the Polish Educational Society under the aegis of “The Portrait Foundation” by Barbara Hamilton. Mick Davies VPRBA had been invited to join the panel of judges to select the winning works. There were more than 600 entries from all over the UK and a final 130 portraits were selected, to be judged by the jury. Prizes were then awarded by the jury in four age categories: 5-6 years old, 7-9 years old, 10-12 years old and 13+ years old.
Mick said, “Choosing winners was so difficult … they were all winners in my eyes – I really enjoyed looking at all the artwork.”
