World Book Day inspired Derwen College students to get creative and design their own book covers for our World Book Day Book Cover Competition.
Scores of learners put pen or paintbrush to paper to produce works of art based on their favourite books.
Meryl Green, Vice CEO and Principal of Derwen College, was given the difficult task of choosing the winners.
First place went to Bethan Charles, who created a Welsh Book; Thomas Price claimed second for his illustrations for The BFG; Anna was awarded third place for Fallen; and Drew Fleming received a Highly Commended for his version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Meryl Green praised the efforts of all students who had taken time and effort to enter the competition.
She said: “What a fantastic effort by all students and staff involved.
We had some really imaginative and creative entries this year – the students were clearly inspired by the theme of the competition and judging was incredibly difficult. Congratulations to the winners and really well done to everyone who got involved.”
Functional Skills Co-ordinator Iain Evans thanked students and supporting staff for taking up the challenge.
He said: “It was a pleasure to look through all the amazing entries we received, and everyone put in a massive amount of hard work and creative thinking. Well done!”
“Thanks also to staff in all areas and roles for encouraging and supporting our students to join in. It proved an excellent distraction for many during the ‘snow-in.’”
All entrants received a well-deserved £1 book token for their efforts.
