The Great Fairy Art Competition Results!

We are so excited to reveal the results of The Great Fairy Art Competition! We received lots and lots of fantastic entries and the Fairy School art teachers
Mike and Angelo were spoiled for choice. They have selected their winners for two categeories – Self-Portrait and General – and have added their comments
below too. Congratulations to all the winners! 

Self-Portrait Category

Highly Commended: Fairy Jerry

Judges’ Comments: What we love about this picture is how Jerry is playing with the conventions of the self-portrait as a genre – drawing a picture of himself painting a picture is in many ways classic Jerry, and we fondly remember his unique, postmodern instincts from his time at Fairy School. Well done Jerry!

Runner-Up: Fairy Autum

Judges’ Comments: Fairy Autum has created such a wonderful self-portrait here. The love she has for her human home and indeed her human Olivia is clear for all to see, and the addition of the rainbow and smiling sun really enhances what was already an excellent picture. It’s lovely to see Autum’s face again. Very well done! 


WINNER: Fairies Everest & Jack

Judges’ Comments: Congratulations Everest and Jack! This marvellously mischievous picture of them trying to open a jar of raisins in their human family’s kitchen is full of the charm and humour we remember them very well for. It made us smile and we are sure their human Lola is very proud! 


General Category

Highly Commended: Fairy Anna

Judges’ Comments: Fairy Anna lives with Macy and her family in Canada and this picture really made us laugh! Anna has always had a great sense of humour and we think that really shows in his excellent picture. In fact, it makes us want to make a quick trip to Paris! Well done Anna. 

Runner-Up: Fairy Cara

Judges’ Comments: We really love this picture that Cara made for her human Niamh – it shows what Cara sees when she opens her fairy door! We know Cara does such a fantastic job looking after her human and this vibrant, colourful picture really shows that. Well done! 


WINNER: Fairy Rainbow Unicorn Holly Shimmer

Judges’ Comments: This picture really made our hearts smile. It shows what Rainbow Unicorn Holly Shimmer sees as she flies above her human Charlotte (and her unicorn Olaf!) and we think she did an absolutely fabulous job. We can feel the love Rainbow Unicorn Holly Shimmer has for Charlotte and we think she is a very deserving winner! Congratulations!!
