ARTWORK made out of rubbish can win schools and charities up to £400 in a new competition.

Portsmouth City Council is calling for artists and groups to create their own masterpieces from recycled materials, with two winners to scoop £400 each.

Cllr Eleanor Scott, who’s in charge of environment issues, said: ‘This is a great opportunity for schools and charities to raise money, and also spread awareness of environmental issues. There are many things which can be recycled in Portsmouth, so the only limitation is your imagination.’

All entries will be on public display, and the winners will be chosen by a judge, who will pick one piece of work, and a public vote, to decide the other.

The closing date to register for the competition is February 28.
