Meet The Finalists

Very soon the long-awaited result will be known, the winner of the Mackenzie Thorpe Inspired Love Of Teesside art competition revealed.

We had in excess of 300 entrants varying across a range from schools to professional artists as models, photographs, water colours, line drawings poured in as the good folk of Teesside responded to a challenge we laid down.

We asked you to present what Teesside meant to you and you told us in the most exhilarating way and we thank you for that.

A panel of judges were faced with the near impossible task of narrowing the entrants to a field of 14 to present to Mackenzie who will pick the overall winner.

You can read about the panel by clicking the link above – we thank them all. Now have a look at the 14 finalists below. They’re in no specific order, we, like you, are waiting for Middlesbrough-born internationally -acclaimed artist to decide.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter and good luck to the 14 you see here.
