MORE than 100 school children have submitted artwork for the Paulinus Art Icon Competition.

Local professional artist Bohuslav Barlow has now judged the work, which he described as “fantastic”, and it is being displayed at the Ntama Gallery, Todmorden Information Centre, and at St Mary’s Church.

The prize-winners will be announced during the Paulinus Festival weekend.

Prizes will be distributed at the beginning of the new school term next month.

Bohuslav said: “Please come along and view the children’s work and experience the other activities happening in Todmorden this weekend.”
