My Favourite Tree 2024 celebration

Back

The My Favourite Tree competition of 2024 has once again captured the imagination and creativity of little artists. With a record-breaking 223 entries, the event has blossomed into a full-fledged celebration of arboreal beauty and artistic expression.

Judges, Ema Rowe, Kerrie Hosegood, Leo Davey, and Graeme Mcvittie, faced the delightful challenge of sifting through the forest of submissions. Their expertise and passion were put to the test as they navigated the diverse landscape of styles and mediums. Adding a new 3D category this year to aide them with their decisions.

As the competition grows, it continues to offer a platform for budding young artists to showcase their talents and share their unique visions of nature’s giants. My Favourite Tree is not just a contest; it’s a community, a conversation, and a celebration of the natural world through the lens of art. Here’s to many more years of inspiring artistry and the trees that kindle our creativity!

On Saturday, 27th April 2024, the My Favourite Tree presentation day at Simonsbath Sawmill became a heart warming event as it drew an incredible turnout to celebrate the children’s artwork. Families beamed with pride and the community showed up in force, all gathering to appreciate the remarkable array of creative works on display.
