Best Illustration and Artwork

Emma Shaw, RushCliffe Spencer Academy
‘Covid’s Chokehold’

A ‘simple, excellent execution of a brief’. This illustration says it all, which is then emphasised by the title. Emma is a clear artistic talent.

Highly Commended

Jenna Hutton, The Marlborough Science Academy
Front Cover

Fulfils the brief beautifully, and is a gorgeous cover which takes you right into the image. In an overall great magazine for illustrations, honourable mention to E. Cropper, whose illustrations are used throughout but wasn’t nominated.

Runner up

Misha Sofia, South Hampstead High School
Climate Change

A great editorial image. Misha’s work clearly shows the ‘knock on’ effect of climate change and complements the article well.
