There are three age categories - from two to seven, up to 12, and 12-plus.

Competitors can use anything they find on the beach, including shells, feathers and stones, to decorate their entries.

The popular family event raises money for the RNLI, which operates both a hovercraft and a rigid inflatable lifeboat from its base at Old Hunstanton.
