The winners of Pembrokeshire Fish Week's annual sculpture competition have been announced.
Entrants created a 3d artwork on the theme of ‘Tidal'. The competition was judged by Pip Lewis of Space to Create and Deb Docherty, Art Lecturer at Pembrokeshire College.
They said that overall, the quality of the entries was very high, showing lots of effort and imagination by all involved.
The winner of the 11 years and under (individual entry) was Adam Khan, from 2nd Milford Haven Sea Scouts, whose sculpture was made from detritus from beachcombing on Gelliswick.
The judges said Adam created a strong sculptural form in keeping with the theme, with a nice element of humour. He won a £25 voucher for Emrys Arts, Haverfordwest.
The runners up were Thomas Marsh from Ysgol Bro Dewi and James Price of 2nd Milford Haven Sea Scouts. Judges praised Thomas' excellent natural curve of the wave and strong use of colour, and James' good use of objects from the shore.
The winner of the 11 years and under (group entry) was Tenby Infants Year 1, (Leo Glanscae, Finley Drummond, Jack Clame, and Chaz Dumphy). Judges said the sculpture was exciting from all angles, and the creativity and use of materials in fulfilling the brief was excellent. The prize is a workshop with Creative Café, Haverfordwest.
The runner up was Ysgol Bro Dewi. Judges said their sculpture was a great shape, with a good combination of found and made objects put together very cleverly.
The winner in the 12-16 years (individual entry) was Ceirion Bray from 2nd Milford Haven Sea Scouts. Judges praised his range of found materials and his clever way of putting them together, with great humour. The prize was a £50 voucher to spend at Emrys Arts, Haverfordwest.
The runner up was Peter Granby from Portfield School, whose entry displayed a good use of colour, according to the judges. Another entry, a bottle with feathers and wood, from Portfield School, was also named runner-up. Judges commented that the found objects were put together well in recognition of the theme.
The Judges also awarded a special prize to the Upper 6th at Portfield School for their mechanical wave in a box.
Kate Morgan, organiser of Fish Week, said; "They felt this entry in particular needed a special mention because of its innovative use of sound and movement which made the materials come to life."
The sculptures were judged at Oriel Y Parc, St Davids, and will be on display at the gallery during Pembrokeshire Fish Week.
