Aon is delighted to announce the winners of the 2016 Aon Community Art Awards developed in association with Leeds College of Art, Glasgow and Manchester Schools of Art.
The winner of the £5,000 prize selected by an independent panel of judges was Steven Ellis of Leeds College of Art. Steven said that “ I didn’t think in a million years that I would win the award in such a high quality field. It’s still not sunk in yet, I am delighted and so thrilled that my praxis and quality of work has been recognised in this professional environment, rubber stamping that I have a functioning fine art practice that functions in the wider artistic community. It’s always been my dream and goal, so thank you all. It means so much.”
The winner of the £2,000 prize awarded by the Aon staff vote went to Sophie Keogh, a graduate of Manchester School of Art.
