Congratulations to Eliza Donnelly, Eliza Markova and Siobhan McGrady in Years 7 and 8 whose book covers’ all won first prize in the ‘Design a Book Cover’ competition.
Students from Years 7, 8 and 9 had to design a cover to be in with the chance of winning a book of their choice from those available at the Book Fair. They could design a cover for a book they had read or an imaginary book made up by themselves, the only criteria being that the cover needed to be colourful, intriguing and eye catching and include information about the book, title and author’s name on the spine.
Head of art, Jenny Strydom judged the competition and said ‘I was extremely impressed with the standard of entries and had a tough job choosing just 3 winners.’
Eliza Donnelly said ‘I designed a cover for ‘James and the Giant Peach’ I drew a huge peach and a boy with his head sticking into it with information about the book on the other side to make it look 3D. I read the book and thought I might try some ideas out and went from there. I wanted to enter because I love art and really enjoy reading so I wanted to win the prize of a new book. I chose ‘Dork Diaries’ and have already finished reading it.’
