Designing artwork for our Children's Day Treatment Centre
We are building a new Children's Day Treatment Centre, which is especially for children requiring surgery who don't need to stay overnight.
We put patients and families at the heart of what we do and want our new facilities to be bright, welcoming and co-designed by those who use them.
We recently ran a competition for children and young people to contribute to the artwork in the new building, which will have an outer space theme. We are working with a team of artists and designers to bring this to life.
Children and young people from across London and the south east submitted their creations showing people and journeys in space.
Our panel of judges, which included Katie Braybrook, Evelina London patient and a member of our Youth Forum, reviewed all of the fantastic entries.
Katie, age 19, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to be on the judging panel for the Evelina London art competition. Being able to help shape the future of the new centre was super rewarding and I loved seeing everyone’s entries. The artwork was out of this world, and all those who entered should be incredibly proud of their creations.”
Our overall winner and winner of the under 10 age category is Ella, age 8 with her astronaut school:
The winner of the 11-16 age category is Alice, age 11 from Surrey, with her picture of an astronaut painting outer space. (Left, below)
The winner of the 17-25 age category is James, age 17 from Wiltshire, with his stargazing image (right, above)
Our judging panel thought the below pieces of art deserved special recognition for their creativity and imagination.
All of the winners' artwork will inspire the final designs to be installed in the new building.
Thank you to everyone who entered
We had so much wonderful artwork to choose from, which has inspired our design team.
