Carphone Warehouse has issued a call to the young people of Portsmouth to join its latest #BeatThePixel Competition.

Young artists, aged 13 or under, are being asked to draw an imaginative portrait in fewer than 15 minutes – the time it takes for the new Google Pixel phone to provide enough charge for seven hours.

A spokesman at the mobile phone giant said: ‘Children are often the best artists because they are so inventive, but they also understand that sometimes, the best results take very little time to achieve.
