The winners of the 2010 Saatchi Gallery / Sunday Telegraph Art Prize for Schools, sponsored by Deutsche Bank, were announced at a prize-giving ceremony at the Saatchi Gallery in London on 12 January 2011.

The first prize was awarded to Harry Churchill, aged 12, a pupil at Dulwich Preparatory School in London. He received £2,000 and his school's art department was awarded £10,000 to spend on art and computer equipment.

The two runners-up are Aroseh Yaseen, aged 17, from Sir William Ramsay School in High Wycombe, and Jim Johnston, aged 17, from Hurtwood House in Dorking. Each runner-up was given £1,000, and their schools received £5,000 each.

The Saatchi Gallery / Sunday Telegraph Art Prize for Schools is open to primary, secondary and sixth form schools from around the world who are invited to submit art work by students up to the age of 18. Over 18,000 entries were submitted this year. Among the 20 shortlisted works were entries from Hungary, Kenya and the US, as well as the UK.

The panel of judges was: the artist Yinka Shonibare, Margot Heller, the director of the South London Gallery, the photographer Mary McCartney, Alistair Hicks, Deutsche Bank art advisor and curator, Andrew Graham-Dixon, chief art critic of The Sunday Telegraph, and Rebecca Wilson, associate director, Saatchi Gallery.

Commenting on the prize, artist Yinka Shonibare said: 'I was astonished by the standard of the entries. It is particularly important to encourage children to express their creativity through art at such an early age. Our collective future success in all areas of culture depends on encouraging creative intelligence through prizes like this one.'

Mary McCartney said: "I was really interested to see that there was such a high quality and standard of entries. What I found particularly pleasing was that many of the art pieces had well thought out concepts and an emotional depth to them that made me wonder what the story was behind the images or sculptures. Some very promising artistic work."

Fellow judge Margot Heller, Director of the South London Gallery, said: 'Prizes like this emphasise the value of artistic endeavour, encourage creativity and give a taste of critical attention beyond the school environment. It has been a pleasure to have a glimpse of the range and quality of works being produced by today's young artists.'

The Prize is part of the Saatchi Gallery's education programme, which is committed to introducing contemporary art to younger audiences. More than 1,200 school groups have visited the new Saatchi Gallery since it opened in Chelsea in October 2008.

An exhibition of the 20 shortlisted entries is at the Saatchi Gallery, Duke of York's Sq, King's Road, London SW3 4SQ from 12-22 January 2011.

Information about entering the 2011 prize will be announced shortly.
