Huge congratulations to Upper Sixth student Zofia Kozinska for winning the regional heat of the ARTiculation Prize last week at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester.

Zofia, who is currently studying A Levels in Fine Art, English Literature and Spanish, represented Carmel College, competing against nine other sixth form colleges from across the North West and Yorkshire. Priyesh Mistry, who is Associate Curator of Modern & Contemporary Projects at the National Gallery in London, was the judge on the day. He commented how amazing it was to see all of the works that the participants chose to speak about, adding that he had learnt so much.

The ARTiculation Prize is an annual art history competition run by the National Gallery. Sixth form students are invited to deliver a ten-minute presentation to an audience about a work of art, artefact, or architecture of their choice. This year over one thousand young people took part, and Zofia is one of only ten finalists who will compete in the grand final at the British Library in London on 20th March. We are all extremely proud of Zofia and all her achievements so far. We wish her the best of luck for the final!
