The East Anglian coast was beautifully depicted by a wood engraved collage from Sue Long's series, Coast, and the landscape award went to Sue Polden's atmospheric picture of Ager Fen Forest, Suffolk.
Other award winners included Adam Wilson's oil on board, Village Scene, Renee Spierdijk's oil painting, Unknown Girl, and Clarissa Upchurch's dramatic work in conte, Façade. Karen Densham used car engine oil on paper to depict aquatic species exposed to oil spills.
The exhibition continues until May 5.
