Look back at the winners of Johnstone's Young Painter of the Year 2017!

 

Throughout the months of March, April and May, talented students across the nation took part in our Johnstone’s Young Painter of the Year Heats 2017. The students were undergoing either an NVQ level 2 in Painting & Decorating or Construction course. With the prestigious competition being held at local colleges where students competed for their region to win a spot at the grand final. 

In November, the grand final took place at the National Painting & Decorating Show in Coventry. Lisa Murphy from the Queenslie Training Centre competed at City Building Glasgow and scooped the title of Johnstone's Young Painter of the Year for 2017. Lisa's skills and attention to detail secured her the top spot, while Kyle Cooper and Thomas Nowell took 2nd and 3rd place. The other finalists included Ayesha Gyimah, Callum Mitchell, Isaac Felmingham, Ryan Griffiths and Naomi Bradshaw. 

In this national competition, we’ve seen talent from across the country put their decorating skills, and knowledge they’ve learned in their courses into practice on an intricate drawing and painting test carefully crafted by our Johnstone’s Trade senior technicians. This year we have had more higher quality entrants with superior painting skills than previous years. Additionally, significantly more females are registering for the heats and participating than ever before in the history of the competition.
 
Congratulations to the finalists for their hard work and commitment in attending the competition over the two days. We wish them the best of luck in their future painting careers.
