A Norfolk school held an art exhibition highlighting its students' work at a well known gallery.
The Wayland Academy, in Watton, displayed art at the Dragon Fly Gallery created by students from Year 7 to GCSE level including painting, photography, textiles and other mixed media.
Visitors were asked to vote for their favourite artworks with 175 votes cast and the photograph called Bottle In The Sand taking first place.
Ryan Kelly, Year 10 student, who won the photography award said: "I feel that my work is finally getting seen, I have felt very happy that I have won the award."
