Once again, we have had a hugely successful competition, with even more entries than ever before. 


Sponsored by Jonathan-Lee Soden of The Soden Collection and Katy Rink from MyShrewsbury magazine, we are very excited to announce this years winner, the very talented JAMES MILLICHAMP.

Here he is with his winning entry, a diptych, which you can see on display in the Soden Gallery window, from 6 -10 October and the front cover of My Shrewsbury magazine later in the year.

On behalf of us all at the Belle Vue Arts Festival, we would like to say a HUGE thank you to both Jonathan-Lee Soden and Katy Rink for their generous support.

Belle Vue and Coleham folks went all out again this year!

Such talent in Belle Vue!


The budding comic artist winner of this competition goes to Charlie Hatton who won an incredible book filled with illustrations by award winning comic artists: Charlie Adlard, Christian Ward, Dan Berry and Mike Perkins.
