THE INNER WEST IS READY FOR A COLOURFUL MAKE OVER…

Thanks of course to this year’s Art Month winners!

This year’s Art Month saw the return of Cobden & Hayson’s popular SOLD sticker competition with even more entries than ever before across our Inner West network. The initiative encouraged local kids to showcase their talents by designing the artwork for our SOLD stickers.

Over the past four years, Matthew Hayson has seen the positive impact the competition brings to our community. Art Month has been a fantastic way to engage with the kids in our community, inspire creativity, get them off ipads and produce our next round of sold stickers. It’s been nothing short of amazing to see the amount of time, detail and flair these budding artists delivered.

Each year, the grand prize winners are gifted with a large hamper of art supplies, while runner ups were presented with smaller prizes that will hopefully encourage them to continue to innovate.

“This year we decided to print more than one winner as the variety of art was outstanding and our agents wanted to emphasise the talent around our community. We have almost 40 new stickers coming to market, that’s more than we’ve ever had” said Brand Manager Tim Wiche

“The comments we received from by passers looking at our window display was great and really stood out on the street. The whole campaign highlighted our aim to become part of and support our community.”

When it came time to choose a winner, it was near impossible however one of our major winners was 5-year-old Heidi who took out one of three grand prize’s at our Balmain office. She produced a colourful piece inspired with bold bright colours that the whole office adored.

Annandale, Drummoyne and Marrickville winners were all just as impressive. These major prize winners produced bold, beautiful pieces that will brighten up any street.

Our Drummoyne Marketing Manager, Tanya Hatton said “Our pre-schools and primary schools totally embrace the art month competition each year. This year we had an even bigger response with more fabulous entries coming in. Judging is harder each year as the quality and variety of talent increases, we certainly have some up and coming artists in our community!”

Look out for all the entries around your neighbourhood.
