A Norwich sixth former has triumphed in an art competition for students across Norfolk - with a montage made of eggs.

Richard Bromley-Derry, who studies at Jane Austen College, won the £200 first prize in this year’s Norfolk Art and Design competition.

He created a portrait of politician Edwina Currie using a montage of eggs, nodding to former health minister’s 1988 controversy when she claimed there was salmonella in most British eggs.

Artists from 20 sixth forms and colleges took part in the contest, run by Norwich University of the Arts.

University vice chancellor professor John Last said: “We’ve been struck by both the high standard of work this year and the range of ideas, formats, and media students have used. I’d like to congratulate the winners.”

Ethan Guttridge, in year 13 at the Hewett Academy, which is also run by the Inspiration Trust, received a highly commended award, while fellow student Maika Esley Medina made the prize shortlist.
