A PAINTING by a north-east primary pupil has been selected as the winning entry in a competition showcasing the work of youngsters and amateur artists.
Portlethen Primary pupil Jodie McGovern was chosen as the overall winner of an art competition inspired by the theme Where I Feel at Home.

The contest marked the end of the first Salt Festival, created to inspire north-east children to explore the world of literature and the arts.
North Kincardine Community Development Group organised the competition, hoping it would help to unite communities in the Mearns.

Nine-year-old Jodie won £150 for her picture depicting her bedroom, which was chosen as the best of the show.
Portlethen Pupil Zoe Middleton was awarded the second prize of £100 for her portrait, called Quiet.
Artists of all ages were able to enter the competition which included categories for primary and secondary pupils as well as adults and groups.

Newtonhill artist Jacky Niven, who judged the competition entries, said: “It was quite a challenge to select the winning pieces.
“Work was judged by its relevance to the brief, quality of the use of medium and presentation.
“It was also encouraging to see so many works conveying positive and warm images.”

Community development group chairman Mike Lloyd-Wiggins praised the high standard of entries and said the competition had been so successful they are hoping to run it again next year.
Planning for Salt 2009 is already under way and organisers want to get the community involved in a wide range of events and shows.
