Budding young artists at state and private schools around Norfolk were invited to put their work forward for the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association (RNAA) Schools Art Competition.

This year saw a runner-up and winner named in each of five categories, covering pupils aged four to 18, while 10 pupils were highly commended.

Cindy Baldwin, a former headteacher and one of this year's judges, said the competition is designed to encourage art participation by children, with the winners' schools - Langley Prep, Sprowston Junior and Wymondham High in the 2019 competition - awarded cash prizes.

Artwork by the pupils who were commended in Thursday's prize-giving was on display in the Discovery Zone at the show.
