Winner of January's The Artist 90th anniversary challenge announced

Emma Price has been selected as the winning entry in the first 90th anniversary painting challenge.

Emma Price has been selected as the winning artist in January's The Artist 90th anniversary challenge for her pen and wash painting, Floating World, see below.

Each month we are inviting entries on a theme inspired by a key event of 1931, the year which saw the launch of the magazine.

In January 1931, Guy Menzies flew the first solo non-stop trans-Tasman flight (from Australia to New Zealand) in 11 hours and 45 minutes, crash-landing on New Zealand's west coast, and our first challenge was to paint on the theme of, or inspired by, flight.

With a host of soaring sea birds over a choppy sea, the judges felt that Emma's joyful, action-packed entry fullfilled the brief perfectly.

Congratulations to Emma, who wins a £50 voucher to spend on Search Press books.

All winning entries will also be featured in a 2022 issue of The Artist.
