Competition - The Winners
Picture Competition
We invited amateur or professional artists, 'who paint or draw and who use the radio as part of their creative process, be it as background or as direct inspiration', to send us an example of their work. We received hundreds of entries and the judges have selected nine of the best, some of which will be exhibited at the Bankside Gallery in London until 2 February 2006.

See the entries in our Winners' Gallery

Congratulations to the winning artists:

Nigel Ellis - Coat
Simon Pierse - Night Passing, Aberystwyth
Celia Crampton - Sprouting
Liz Wright - Cheeky Sea Gulls
Alex McEwen - Short-wave Long-wave
Sue Lawes - Not Enough Tents
Aude Jager - Sea Drawing 3
David Lock - Cartoon: Radio Inspiration
Peter Blathwayt - Intimate Letters
Searching for winners from over 350 entries for the 'Radio and the Artist' competition was one of the most pleasurable and interesting things I've had to do lately. All entries were accompanied by 100 words on the role radio played in the conscious or unconscious working hours of each of the artists. Reading these were a delight, and the thought, that when we are all in our studios across the length and breadth of the country (and further afield) radio (mainly Radio 4) is with us all, is an encouraging and unifying experience. The standard was usually high from professional and amateur, and after separating out a shortlist of about 30, our final decision-making became very difficult. Congratulations to the winners and runners-up, and many more radio-fuelled hours of work in the future!
