2015 Winners

The number of participating schools grows each year.  Be part of the excitement next year.  Tell your school!

 

Thank you to the more than 250 artists who submitted their work to the Jewish Music Week in Toronto Art Contest! The theme was The Music of Jewish Holidays and the results were spectacular!

 

The Award of Excellence and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners, as well as Honourable Mentions, will have their work displayed in the Jewish Music Week Art Exhibit at the Miles Nadal JCC (750 Spadina) from May 5 – 18. 

 

During the judging process, it became clear that in addition to these winners, there were many artists worthy of acknowledgement for their creativity and skill as shown in their pieces.  To this end, a new category called Artists of Note was established to honour these students and the art they created. Their beautiful work is below.
