Ringmaster: Stories from the Christchurch Art Gallery
Behind the scenes
Last Thursday was the prize giving for the Ringmaster competition
The Night was really successfull with a big crowd of people who turned up to hear our judges Gavin Bishop and Joanna Orwin speak and to find out if they had won a prize.
The competition invited young writers between the ages of 8 and 18 to select a work of art from the Gallery's online collection and use it as inspiration for a short narrative or poem.
