The Norwich Business Improvement District (BID) launched its Festive Faces competition in December, encouraging people to submit their photos and selfies.

They were screened onto the side of the 900-year-old castle, before judges whittled down the entries into a final five for three categories - portraits, groups and pets.

The runners-up were Natasha Hennessey, with her photo of a youngster in a Christmas onesie, Katie Day's family shot in elf costumes and Sophie Steward, with a picture of her golden retriever in its Christmas glasses.
