Children under the age of 12 were invited to give their interpretation f the theme, and judges had a hard time in deciding the winners, with an incredibly high standard of entries.

Chair of Peterhead Informal Art Group, Roger Berl, told the gathering: "We have a record entrance this year and I'd like to thank all for coming along."

The winners were as follows:

Under 7 years - 1 Aiden Watson, 2 Alexa Bruce, 3 Leah Murray.

7-9 years - 1 Eden Stephen, 2 Noah Morrison, 3 Ava Gracie.

10-12 years - 1 Rachael Haggart, 2 Nora Shin, 3 Mia Mena.

The Sam Allan Prize for Originality went this year to Jeffrey Jikena.
