Ladies and Gentlemen, dear Children! We are pleased to announce the results of the 5th Art Contest entitled “the Most Beautiful Christmas Card”. We are aware you have been keen to know the winner, but we received so many works that it was a tough nut to crack for our jury.
We had long discussions, debating and convincing one another to the choice of the works which, to our mind, were the best, since they were all of excellent quality. We evaluated not only the appearance, but also the idea, depiction, and technique used. The winning card is that made by Kamil Dragon of grade 5M. We would like to thank all the Little Artists from the Special School no. 9 of Katowice for participation in the contest and for creation of unique cards for KSP, which you can view in the gallery below.
We would also like to take this opportunity and wish a peaceful Christmas and Happy New Year to all our Clients, associates and sympathizers of our Law Ofﬁce!
