Four talented Bridgnorth Endowed students have been selected as the winners of an art competition organised by Filtermist International to mark this year’s Clean Air Day on Thursday 16th June.

The Shropshire-based industrial filter manufacturer invited students to submit designs that capture what clean air means to them and dozens rose to the challenge.

Director of Group Marketing, Lydia Barber​, said: “We’d like to thank the students for all the effort they’ve put into the Clean Air Art Competition – we are absolutely delighted that so many took the time to take part.”

“It was really difficult to judge as the standard was so high, but we shortlisted down to four pieces per year group and agreed on a final winner for each.”

The winning designs, which came from Daisy Berry (Y7), Daisy Green (Y8), Amelie Maynard (Y9) and Robert Horton (Y10), were chosen for their artistic composition and unique approaches to the theme.

Daisy Berry, who incorporated real flowers into her sketched piece, was praised by judges for her “clear message” and “simple but very powerful design.” Whilst Daisy Green gave an entirely different perspective and focused on the impact that air pollution has on human health by encapsulating environmental imagery in the shape of the lungs.

Amelie’s dream-like acrylic painting, lauded as “attention-grabbing” and “very well executed”, depicts two giant hands holding a bright globe that’s flourishing with nature and surrounded by clean air.

Robert was the only student to submit a digital entry and the Filtermist team felt the contrast between the dark, polluted wasteland and vibrant, clean utopia was really strong.

The top four saw off some stiff competition from other students, who explored a multitude of imaginative ways to communicate the clean-air message in support of Clean Air Day.

Congratulations to the winners who each received a £50 Hobbycraft voucher and Filtermist goody bag as their prizes, plus the work they produced has already been printed onto canvases, which are now on display in the reception at Filtermist’s headquarters.
