For our most recent coloring contest, entrants were presented with a coloring page inspired by our Anthem decorator model, and were encouraged to add color to him in any way they chose! We had plenty of incredible entries that ranged from skies lit up on the 4th of July to jaw-dropping fantasy scenes.
We were excited to welcome legendary Breyer sculptor Kathleen Moody to the judging panel alongside the Breyer team! Her comments accompany each of our placing entries.
Each entry was judged on both creativity and coloring skills. There were three age categories: 10 and under, 11-16, and 17 and up. The first place winner in each category will receive an Anthem model as their prize, and the second and third place winners will receive a Sparkler plush.
Here are our winners!
Kennedy L., WA
"I love this one, especially for the background! Very creatively done – Kennedy has a whole scene going on back there with a very patriotic theme. It's also nice and neatly-colored."
2nd place: Zunairah A., ON, Canada
"I like this one for the outside-the-box treatment. WOW! Someone had a heyday creating this seahorse! It's so original!"
3rd place: True G., VA
"This entry stood out immediately because of the stunning black and white pinto and the addition of a rider carrying a flag. It is very creative and colorful!"
Grace Y., FL
"I felt that this entry was the nicest of the lot for its color and execution!"
2nd place: Mariner G., VA
"The white horse, dark sky and an American flag make this entry featuring George Washington especially nice. Very creative!"
3rd place: Gabriella L., PA
"I love the idea of the sun coming up in this one. The rising sun heralds a new day. The house in the background and the shadows on the lush green grass add so much to this image."
Rachel W., OR
"This entry is STUNNING! The execution, the colors, fine detailing, the horses, and even the mountains in the background – breathtaking! This is America at its best – wild horses running free. Love it!"
2nd place: Sarah E., MD
"Sarah has some wonderful complimentary colors going on here that make this entry really POP! Lady Liberty riding high is a grand addition, and in such finery! Very nicely executed and very creative!"
3rd place: May Y., FL
"Look at the flowing colors in this one! The horse is so softly done – and is that a space shuttle up there in the sky? Way cool."
