One of the highlights of the first Hornsea Art Festival was the 4-hour Challenge at Hornsea Mere when Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year Tom Voyce re-created the TV format. The Challenge was open to participants of Tom’s workshop and anyone who wanted to join in the fun as a wild card.  The judges were Tom and Heather Burton and prizes were generously awarded by Great Art and East Riding Artists.

Ist prize – Martin Piper


2nd prize – Mimi Claughton


3rd prize – Larry Malkin


4th prize – Claude Hargreaves
