Aged seven, Max Kearns, from Alnmouth, is the youngest person to enter. The Hipsburn Primary School pupil loves to draw and has submitted his felt-tip-pen image of Alnmouth’s coloured buildings.

Meanwhile, Nicola Stevenson, 46, from Shilbottle, has created quite possibly the largest-ever design – an acrylic/glaze seascape on a 3ft by 3ft canvas.

The deadline for entries has closed and the results of the judging will be announced soon.
