We are proud to announce that Kaed in Year 9 won The Jersey Child care trust (JCCT) Seymour Bear Children’s Book Illustration in December 2019. There was fierce competition as the JCCT received well over 1,000 entries across 23 different schools on Jersey, so this really was an amazing achievement.
Kaed’s design was for Henry, the soldier bear, and he he deserves this recognition of his talent.
The judges said they were ‘absolutely blown away’ by the enthusiasm and creativity shown.
Kaed is now invited to a half-day workshop in January with local illustrators Lauren Radley and Nanette Regan to develop his character’s illustrations.
