2010 National Visual Arts Competition and Exhibition – Viewer’s Vote Winners

Berette Macauley, winner of the Claro Viewers’ Vote, and David Sykes, winner of the TEF Viewers’ Vote

The National Visual Arts Competition and Exhibition, our annual collaboration with the JCDC, not only attracts medals and sectional prizes but also allows members of the public to cast their vote. Until last year, there was a single Viewer’s Vote, cast by means of paper ballots. This year, for the first time, there were two Viewer’s Votes: one for the medal winners, sponsored by Claro and operated with text voting; the second for the remaining works in the exhibition, sponsored by the Tourism Enhancement Fund and which uses the conventional ballot voting method.

The results of this year’s dual Viewer’s Vote were announced on Thursday, August 19 on TVJ’s Smile Jamaica morning programme and the winners are:
