The crème de la crème of the UK's painting and decorating community came together recently to mark the 30th Johnstone’s Painter of the Year competition in the prestigious surroundings of the London Film Museum.
With a record number of entries received, representatives from Johnstone's technical team travelled the length and breadth of the country in order to handpick this year's 17 finalists, spanning four categories - Residential, Commercial and Industrial, Period and Restoration and Health and Education. Looking at the quality of decorative finish, intricacy of the work involved and the technical and logistical challenges presented by the projects, it's clear that only the finest work made it through.
Magill Painting Contractor’s Ltd based in Doncaster recently completed work decorating the interior of Doncaster Council’s 57,500 sq ft Civic Office building including walls, ceilings and skirting boards and also the new £10m Campsmount Technology College.
But it was the sheer scale and quality of the work project carried out by the 20-strong team during the year-long refurbishment of Sirius & Ganton Academy in Hull, which included two specialists painstakingly hand-painting a striped blue, green and yellow finish in the school's atrium, which impressed the audience and judges on the night. Magill Painting Contractor’s Ltd claimed the ultimate accolade of Supreme Winner and were crowned Johnstone's Painter of the Year. In addition to the kudos which comes from winning this prestigious award, the team from Magill also won a fully branded new van to ensure their business will never be missed in Doncaster and surrounding areas.
Simon Magill, Director of Magill Painting Contractors, said: ‘We were absolutely thrilled just to have made it to the final of these awards, and to then be named the Supreme Winner was just incredible! We faced strong competition from the other entrants and to have our work on the Sirius & Ganton Academy in Hull recognised at such a prestigious event is a real honour and more than makes up for all the hours spent working on it!’
Steve Pocock, General Manager, PPG Architectural Coatings UK & Ireland commented: ‘Congratulations to Magill Painting Contractors for being crowned this year's Supreme Winner. It was fantastic to see such high quality craftsmanship and professionalism once again from all the finalists in this year's competition. Johnstone's is delighted to have been able to celebrate the quality of British decorating and to recognise the very best in the business through our Painter of the Year event over the last 30 years. The judges are impressed year on year by the quality of work entered and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing next year's entries already!’
The event, which was attended by over 200 guests, helped Johnstone's raise a staggering £10,000 for Help for Heroes via a series of fundraising initiatives on the evening.
