Galway’s resident caricature artist Allan Cavanagh has been shortlisted in three categories in the Wedding Industry Awards 2023. A former Macnas stalwart and founding member of the Galway Cartoon Festival, Allan is a finalist in the Wedding Entertainment Supplier of the Year, Personalised Items Supplier of the Year, and Gifts and Favours Supplier of the Year categories.
Able to capture a face in under three minutes, last year Allan drew over 2,300 people and appeared in more than 60 venues at weddings and events all over Ireland.
Speaking about being shortlisted he said absolutely delighted to have been nominated, and thrilled to have made the finalist list.
“The reaction from people on social media has been really heartwarming.
“Lots of people know the impact the pandemic had on the wedding industry, but we were finally able to bounce back last year. It’s great to know my art has made such an impression for so many newlyweds and their guests.” he said.
The award ceremony will take place on February 7 2023 in Johnstown House Estate and will be hosted by magician Keith Barry and Sara Kennedy of the Irish Wedding Blog. You can see Allan’s wedding work at CaricatureArtist.ie
