“The Artist Competition was held with the support of our partners, The Bermuda Society of Arts, Department of Community and Cultural Affairs and the Bermuda Department of Tourism. The theme, in keeping with Heritage Month was, ‘The colours, sights and sounds of Bermuda.’

“There were three categories, two of which the judges were responsible for. These categories were Overall Winner and Runner Up. However, there was a piece of art that the judges felt very strongly about and awarded a special mention prize and thus added an additional category.”

The judges were:

  • Charles Anderson from BSOA
  • Sophie Cressel from BNG
  • Steven DeSilva the City of Hamilton Parks Superintendent
  • City of Hamilton Councillor Troy Symonds
  • Clyde-a-Mae Tucker from the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs

Honorable Mention went to Nancy Hutchings Valentine for “Music 1.” The runner up was Ms. Anne Kermode. She received $500 in cash and membership to the Bermuda National Gallery and the Bermuda Society of Arts. The name of her piece was “Watering Hole.”

The overall winners were Ms. Ami Zander and Mr. Milton Hill for their submission, “Heritage”. They will share: $1,000 in cash and an exhibition at the Bermuda Society of Arts [to take place anytime within the next 12 months] together with $500 worth of marketing and communications support for their exhibition;

Each was awarded membership to the Bermuda Society of Arts and membership to the Bermuda National Gallery.

Mayor Outerbridge concluded, “The People’s Choice award winner will be announced on May 15. The general public is invited to go to the BSOA [on the second floor of City Hall] to cast a vote for their favorite piece. The winner will receive $500 and membership in Bermuda Society of Arts and the Bermuda National Gallery.”
