South Asian Society’s Creative Art and Talent Contest helped us to raise £1060 for Food Banks

The response from our young talented participants was fantastic and I look forward to sharing the creative artworks with you in future editions of the newsletter.  An independent panel of judges carried out the judging of the entries in all the categories. They included an impressive selection of professionals who have contributed to life, society and their professional fields in the South West in extraordinary ways; they included Anil Koshti (MBE), Manoj Chitnavis (Educationist), Natasha Koshti-Symons (Mrs Atlantic 2020) and Sarita Nesargi (Lawyer). The judges were truly impressed with the submissions and found them moving, impressive, exciting and notoriously difficult to judge the winner; they were so well matched and creative. We are so proud of our young ones.

The results were very close, and we have had excellent feedback for all our participants. We are pleased to announce the winners in individual categories:
