Pupils across Aberdeenshire have been rewarded for their creative talents.
Youngsters from across the Marr area of Aberdeenshire have worked on their creations for the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust schools’ art competition.
As part of the contest, they were invited to submit a piece of art work depicting a species of British game or wildlife in its natural habitat.
With support from The MacRobert Trust, more than 20 prizes were given to budding artists aged four to 18 from across the region.
The overall winner for the primary school contest was Mateo Masserotti from Midmar Primary for his very detailed pencil drawing of a fox.
Charlotte Reynolds of Aboyne also won for her image of a puffin and lighthouse over the cliffs and Joshua Simms of Torphins was acclaimed for the 50 best words in the primary category.
Iona Laing, organiser of the competition on behalf of the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust, said: “It was very special to receive so many works of art and excellent descriptions and the uptake for our first year was very encouraging.
“The prize giving was a highlight, so well supported by winners and their families and teachers and it was a joy to see so many young prize winners take to the stage.
“It is with great thanks to the local teachers that we are able to run this competition, and their efforts and enthusiasm are key to its success.
“Thanks also to The MacRobert Trust, Mel Shand, RNCI and Aberdeen City Council.”
