Picture someone special – discover your nearest display

We invited pupils aged 5-8 from schools across the UK to draw a portrait of someone in their community who makes a positive difference to their daily lives, a local treasure. We received over 8,000 entries and would like to thank everyone who took part.

30 entries were randomly selected as part of a prize draw, each receiving prizes for the child and their school. Separately to this, some entries were selected to go on display in their nearest John Lewis, each shop now has its own unique display as part of Back to School. You may wish to go and have a look at your nearest display, the artwork is fantastic.

If you can’t get to your local John Lewis shop visit the John Lewis website to see a gallery of selected portraits on display.
