We love being able to share some of our amazing products with our customers and, as you may know, host regular prize draws and competitions throughout the year. Here are some of our prize winners from some of our recent giveaways…
Back in December we gave away a selection of beautiful hampers full of art supplies in each of our shops. Our winner from Camberwell was artist Gabriella Rosenau. Gabriella is an fantastically talented individual – her uncanny life drawings are a sight to behold! On the opposite end of the scale to realism, she’s also a great cartoonist. See for yourself over on her Instagram page. Here’s Gabriella collecting her hamper.
Over in Shoreditch, we chose Tom Levinge as our winner. Tom has directed two series of comedy shorts for Channel 4, produces Rude Tube for E4, makes silly online videos for The Poke, collaborates with sketch groups and comedians and performs improv comedy. You can watch some of his work over on Vimeo.
Tom very kindly donated his prize to a local charity, the Spitalfields Crypt Trust (SCT). Based in East London, SCT provide practical help, support and training to people who have been homeless and suffering from addiction, poverty or social isolation. We’d like to thank you once again Tom for your very kind donation. Here’s a volunteer from SCT collecting their hamper from our Shoreditch branch:
Last month we gave away £500 to spend on any Daler-Rowney products as part of our Winter Sale Prize Draw. The lucky winner of this great prize was Willa Hilditch. Here’s a few words from Willa herself:
“I always enter competitions and never win them – this is so exciting! I’m an artist living in South London. I graduated from my BA at Chelsea College of Art last year and I am currently studying the Drawing year programme at the Royal drawing school. I work at speed so get through my materials very quickly (especially paper!). I draw predominantly, but also paint with oils, so this will really help me to keep making!”
This year we’ll be bring you lots of exciting events and competitions in-store & online – more than ever, in fact! You’ve got to be in it to win it though. For all of the latest news and offers, keep an eye on our Facebook page where you’ll be the first to find out what’s going on.
A big thanks to everyone who took part in our Christmas & Winter Sale Prize Draws!
