Show Racism the Red Card chose the winners of its art competition for schoolchildren this week. Entries were judged by a panel of local arts, sports and business leaders including Shaun Johnson and John Conway of Potts Print (UK), and former Magpies John Anderson and Olivier Bernard.

The annual prize challenges children from schools nationwide to create art that encourages awareness of racism in people of all ages. Entries included posters, T-shirts, clay models, songs, films and writing. Photos of the winning entries coming soon to this blog and on the Show Racism the Red Card website:

The awards ceremony will take place at St James’ Park in May, and Potts Print (UK) will do a live blog from the event. The winners work will then be displayed at a public exhibition at the Sage in Gateshead.
