We had some wonderful entries into our 'Paint your Pet' art competition. They were judged by local artist Ross Constable who said:

"Thank you for allowing me to judge the competition. I really enjoyed the experience.

Entries came from far and wide and the overall standard was very high. It was evident how much the pets are loved from the pieces produced. It was great to see such a variety of techniques making each entry very personal. Well done to everyone who entered as it can be quite daunting to share your artwork with the world.

I found it tough to choose a winner in each age category but my decision was ultimately made on character, understanding and use of technique and materials. The winners captured the individuality and personality of their pets.

There were many different abilities evident in the submissions and everyone who entered should be proud of their efforts. Keep up the good work"

And now for the winning entries:

Age 6 and Under

Age 7-11

Age 12-16

Age 16 and Over

Congratulations everyone, and thank you for entering our competition.
