Last week we hosted a live pub quiz and thought it would be nice to have a bonus art round. The task was to draw/paint a can of baked beans and several hundred of you delivered. Your entries were very impressive and I really struggled to choose a winner. So I chose three.

In third place: Cara Ovens and her Edvard Munch-inspired 'The Beanz'

Congratulations Cara, you win a video message in which I will say exactly five words. Choose wisely.

In second place: Thomas Kostecki and his 'Mount Fuji Bean Eruption'

Congrats Thomas, you get a video message with 10 words. Choose carefully.

T​he judge was impressed by the inclusion of two icons: PAPSRSOD and Fuji-san.

And finally, first place goes to Megan Tudor's Dali beans

A fine piece of art Megan. You get a video message of a whole paragraph. Enjoy.

A​ll of the submitted artworks will form the basis of a special exhibition at London's South Bank Centre entitled 'Beanz imitating life'.

  • I must say, looking through all the entries was an hour or so very nicely spent. I then read EH Gombrich all the way through.

    • Do you think EH Gombrich liked beans? I personally think he'd like the type with sausages in if he did. You could argue that he was much more of a Spaghetti Hoops kinda guy.

    • I think he would have thrown spag hoops at the wall and then contemplated the meaning of it.
