SCHOOLS EXHIBITION 2021
Following a a busy and exciting time for everyone involved in the 9th running of the prestigious dot-art Schools Exhibition, dot-art recently announced the overall winners and runners up of the 2021 event. The 9th annual exhibition was held from 11th June-25th June at the iconic Port of Liverpool Building, located on Liverpool’s waterfront at the Pier Head.
Poject manager at dot-art, Carolyn Murray, said, “We want to say a big thank you to CBRE, who manage the building, and kindly hosted us during the exhibition and hope that many people managed to get along to view the winning works in such a magnificent setting.”Due to the Covid restrictions, the prize-giving took place online and Carolyn proudly announced, “Over 200 guests registered for the presentation, but we know that many teachers also watched it live with their class. The prize-giving was a very high tech endeavour for us, and wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing Edge Hill creative media team! We are also grateful to the two winning schools for their input.”
