Les Peterkin Prizes awarded to local school children

This year’s Les Peterkin Portrait Prize for local primary school students has broken records, with more than 3000 entries from 37 schools, four enthusiastic judges and 40 winners. Students worked on the theme Me, Myself and I, sketching, collaging and painting artworks that capture their unique personality or a special characteristic through self-portraiture. First prize winners from the three age categories: Ava Ziles (5-7 years) from Dungay Public School, Charlie Wappett (8-10 years) from Byron Community Primary School, and Delta Fox (11-13 years) from Chillingham Public School.
