Teletext Art

Results are in for the 2018 Block Party Art Competition!

Voting for the Bloktoberfest Teletext Art Comp has now closed, and the results are in.

But before announcing the winners, we would like to wholeheartedly thank everyone who participated in this year’s Teletext Fest. Whether you dropped into Wigan STEAM last month, entered the art competition remotely or viewed our videos and live streams online, we are very grateful for your contributions!

As every category was filled with strong entries, you shouldn’t be downhearted if your art isn’t mentioned on this page. It doesn’t mean it was bad, and anyway, every single entrant wins an invisible jar of crisp Wigan air for their mantelpiece.

And now, those results. In the following video, you can hear our Block Party panel of teletext artists discuss the entries:
