The end of the Inaugural RQ Youth Art Awards is here. It would not have been possible if not for our fabulous judges, sponsors and entrants.
We are deeply grateful to our Judges, Easton Dunne, Jacky Chan, Jet James and Isabelle Andrew, for the time and effort they devoted to reviewing our entries. Their experience and expertise combined with their passion for art were essential in ensuring that artworks were rewarded.
