Winner announced for our Leed in Colour competition!
From the 20th April to 18th May, we ran the Leeds In Colour competition, giving people the opportunity to engage in some mindful colouring and get creative during the lockdown.
We encouraged people to let their imaginations run wild and colour in the Leeds illustrations with whatever art equipment they could get their hands on, from paint, colouring pencils, chalks, pens and more! Those who entered their finished designs via social had the chance of winning a £100 Amazon e-Gift Voucher and a £100 donation to a charity of their choice.
Thank you to everyone who entered, we received so many fantastic designs over the past month! All the entries were sent to the artist of the illustrations, Janice Leung, to pick a winner. Janice commented:
“It was really really hard to choose from all these entries; they all looked very good and it seemed like people had a lot of fun colouring it in. Every submission was different and it really shows that everyone’s take on Leeds is unique in their own special way”.
We are pleased to announce the winner of the Leeds in Colour competition is…Louisa Wirtz! Well done Louisa! Janice shared with us her reasons for selecting the winner:
“I loved the details she added to the ground and the sky, it seemed like she really showed her personality in the drawing. There’s also an elaborate use of colours, which brings the image to life”
Louisa will be donating the £100 prize donation to children’s charity The Snappy Trust, York, where she has previously worked and volunteered.
You can check out all of the entries on our Leeds in Colour Facebook album.
The competition may be closed, but feel free to download and colour in the fantastic illustrations. We’d still love to see your works of art on our social channels so remember to tag us and use #LeedsInColour.

The original artwork has been created by Janice Leung – an artist from Leeds Arts University– and a winner in our 2017 art competition. Janice’s piece named ‘Utopian’ portrays elements within Leeds city centre, uprooted and redrawn to redefine the perception of the city. By altering, repositioning and redrawing the city it not only changes the way you perceive the place but also how you understand it.
*This colouring competition is open to all. Please note that by entering the competition you have given consent for Wellington Place to share your entry and your name on our website and social media channels.
