We launched the Top Trump competition at the end of June calling for artist’s creative responses to President Trump’s visit to the UK on Friday 13th July.
Iraqi American artist Hiba Jameel beat over 100 international entries to win.
Hiba’s powerful painting " I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" will now be donated to the Newseum news museum in Washington DC.
On hearing of her success Hiba said; “While I am thrilled my painting got selected I cannot be fully happy during these sad times we are living in. This painting is not for me, it is for the people and all the children who suffered childhood trauma due to the unrest of the political climate.”
Our jury of satirists, political activists, comedians and artists was; Rachel Parris from BBC “Mash Report, Helen Pankhurst (Granddaughter of suffragette Sylvia Pankhurst), political cartoonist Martin Rowson, Director of the Women of the World Festival Jude Kelly, UK artists The Singh Twins & photographic artist Tom Hunter.
