CHILDREN’S artwork commemorating the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic will be on display as part of a competition.

Youngsters from Hook-with-Warsash Primary School and Park Gate Primary School were invited by Hardings Picture Framing and Art Gallery to take part in an art competition based on the ill-fated ship.

The entries were judged by local professional artist, Peter Levy, Hardings’ owner, Jem Weston and gallery manager, Claire Weston who picked the six finalists.

The finalists have now had their works professionally framed and they will be displayed in the gallery window in Shore Road, Warsash, throughout April.

People can vote for their favourite by visiting Hardings’ Facebook page and the winner will receive art materials and a Royal Mint Titanic centenary coin as well as £100 of book vouchers for their school.

Mrs Weston said: ‘The children have all done a magnificent job and it has been really difficult to choose the finalists because the standard has been very high. We look forward to seeing how the public vote and we hope this will be the first of many competitions to come.’
