Art School of Peterborough Wins Holiday Window Contest

Congrats to the Art School of Peterborough on winning the 2022 Holiday Window Contest.

This year, over 3k votes were cast to help determine the most loved Winter Woodland themed holiday window.  

The Art School of Peterborough was inspired to create a woodland scene filled with their favourite lovable forest creatures, all joyfully hand-drawn with care.

“The Art School of Peterborough is humbled to win 1st place in the 2022 Holiday Window Contest! Thank you so much to everyone who has shown their support; to our students, our instructors and coworkers, our neighbours, and our local Peterborough community,” says Raine Knudsen, The Art School of Peterborough Receptionist.

In celebration of the season, all visitors who happen to stop by the Art School will be treated to a hand-made ceramic snowflake ornament crafted by the many talented students from the Art School of Peterborough.

“Just like a snowflake, the Peterborough community is extraordinary in every way, you are one of a kind, a fantastic individual, an exceptional find. Thanks Peterborough, for all the support and love you’ve shown us, and so many other local businesses and non-profits this holiday season. The Art School wishes everyone a bright and beautiful winter holiday and happy new year, says” says Raine Knudsen, The Art School of Peterborough Receptionist.

This year’s winners are: 

1st place — The Art School of Peterborough, 174A Charlotte Street 

2nd Place — Fork It, 288 Charlotte Street 

3rd Place — The Capital PTBO 370 George Street 

The top three winners will be receiving $1,000, $500, and $300 for their winning windows. Locals voted online for their top three holiday window displays throughout the contest period from November 14 to December 5.  

“We love seeing our shop owners put their own creative spin on the holidays with our Holiday Window Contest. It really sets the tone of the season and brings a lot of charm into our historic downtown shopping district. This year’s theme was Winter Woodland and our businesses curated many whimsical winter displays capturing the spirit of the theme and magic of the holidays,” says Terry Guiel, DBIA Executive Director.
