The Gung Ho Student Pizza Box Design Competition was once again a massive success! This year we had entires from most of the international schools in Beijing, including the British School of Beijing, Beijing City International School, Beijing World Youth Academy, Dulwich and Harrow.
This year we had a total of 157 submissions, slightly less than last year, but of an even higher standard.
So much so that once again we had to enlist the aid of professional artists: Kang Hao Xian, Zhang Mo Liu, Tian Qi and Yan Shuo to judge. They definitely had their work cut out for them, taking nearly 4 hours to choose our finalists and winners!
Before we get to the winners we’d like to give a final thank you to all the supporters of this project, to all the teachers and parents, and of course to all the incredibly talented Beijing students that showed such amazing creative talent and aritistic ability.
在公布此次的获奖名单之前，还是要先给支持本次艺术盒设计项目的所有人致谢 —— 老师和家长，当然还有贡献了非凡创造力的“小艺术家们”！

DESIGN AWARD WINNER (12 & UNDER)
JADEN, BRITISH SCHOOL OF BEIJING
We loved the boldness of the piece and whimsy of the characterization. The title shows strong modern design elements and the use of space and limited color pallette is strong.
GRAND PRIZE WINNER (12 & UNDER)
KATSO GASFORWE, BRITISH SCHOOL OF BEIJING
A unanimous choice from our panel of artists, who were capivated by it’s consistency of vision and execution – reminiscent of Yayoi Kusama!
DESIGN AWARD WINNER (18 & UNDER)
ROSIE DEAR, HARROW INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
We loved the strong design of this piece, from the use of space and color to the use of perspective and point of view! A wonderfully nuanced and well designed view of Beijing summer.
GRAND PRIZE WINNER (18 & UNDER)
LEONARD BESSE, BRITISH SCHOOL OF BEIJING
Each choice was a difficult choice, but the inclusion of this piece does speak for itself. The panel remarked on both the technical and the creative execution of the art, from perspective and point of view, to light and shadow and movement – a very singular and unique view of Beijing in Summer.
