Here we have the GOLD, SILVER BRONZE and 2 x Merit WINNERS - Adults Section - Fakes & Forgeries 2021 !!!
Fact is every one who entered this time should really be honored. The standard and ideas were so high and varying, the 3 Judges ALL came up with differing ideas as to the winners. Many artworks not mentioned here were in the running, so it was with much debate and averaging the top choices that the difficult final 5 were arrived at. So... thanks again to all that entered and here are the Winners...
Adults 1st Gold - "Sunflowers" (after Van Goch) - by artist Willow
Adults 2nd Silver - "Girl with a Teddy-Bear Earring" (after Vermeer) - by Kim Rees
Adults 3rd Bronze - "Tutaepuroporo" (after Van Goch/Peter Macintyre) - by Louise Templer
