Talented teen wins YKC artist of the year award

Issue: 02/02/2018


The YKC has announced the winners of its tenth annual YKC Artist of the Year competition which will be showcased at the world's greatest dog event, Crufts 2018.
The popular annual art competition invited talented YKC members to design the front cover of the YKC Crufts catalogue. 
Members were encouraged to get creative and submit their design within the theme 'head and shoulders above the rest - a dog portrait'. The overall winner was eighteen year-old Sarah McLaughlin from Littleport, Cambridgeshire.
Proud winner Sarah said: "I'm very excited that the judges liked my style of painting, and that it will be seen by hundreds of people at Crufts. I love painting, especially in an aboriginal style which I first discovered aged 14. I decided to take inspiration from it for this, but I also like to apply the style to plant pots and ornaments."
Sarah, who has been a YKC member for five years, based her painting on a photo she took of her eight year-old Labrador, Max in the family garden last spring. She is currently in her first year at Durham University studying geography. 
The winner and runners up of the Young Kennel Club Artist of the Year competition are as follows:
1st place: 18 year-old Sarah McLaughlin from Littleport, Cambridgeshire' 2nd place: 14 year-old Chloe McLellan from Presteigne, Powys, 3rd place: 11 year-old Daisy Mason from Stokesley, Middlesbrough. Sarah, Chloe and Daisy's art work will be on display at Crufts. Alongside having her artwork featured on the cover of the catalogue, Sarah will receive 75, art supplies and a year's free YKC membership. Chloe also wins 50 and art supplies and Daisy will receive 30 plus art supplies.
