Bring it to the Boardroom - Winner Announcement


We are proud to announce Ellie Compton as the winner of Bring it to the Boardroom, our biannual competition providing local creators with the chance to win a retail opportunity with Ballantynes.

Ellie is a Christchurch based artist who weaves narrative and architecture together to create worlds through beautifully delicate line work. As the grand prize winner, Ellie’s artwork will be available to be purchased both online and instore, with all revenue going directly to her for the first twelve months.

We would like to thank every one of our entrants for their time. Despite the Boardroom being quite figurative and transitioning into a digital one over lockdown, our contestants presented with passion and enthusiasm. Our panel of judges were impressed by the calibre and quality of the exceptional products that were showcased to us.

As a Canterbury-born business ourselves, we are so excited to work with Ellie on her journey and to see her brand develop and grow.
