Winners of the A.M.P. Art Prize 2013

After the death of A.M. Parkin in June 2012 a memorial trust was set up by his wife Anthea, son Tom and daughter Anna to offer financial support for aspiring artists who demonstrated particular skills in the field of drawing. Funds to support this came from the many friends, admirers and collectors of his work who attended his memorial service in September 2012, as well as a proportion of the proceeds from A.M. Parkin's posthumously published book A Village Artist.

The three winners of the inaugural drawing award, who will each receive £500, are as follows:
