CHILDREN were given the chance to showcase their artistic flare and aspirations in a visual art competition at Harrow Arts Centre.
Youngsters were asked to draw or paint a picture on the theme of, 'your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them', to coincide with the Christmas pantomime Cinderella.
More than 130 entrants took part, creating an array of artwork which reflected personal desires and ambitions.
Reema Rathod, participation programmer at the centre, in Uxbridge Road, Hatch End, said: "We had a great response from the children and they put so much effort into their work it was hard choosing a winner."
She was one of the judges alongside the mayor and mayoress of Harrow, professional artist Lawrence Mathias and Harrow Council's international communications officer, Undaleeb Qazi.
The winners were Mann Parekh, six, from Belmont First School, Hibbert Road, Harrow, Shrushti Shah, 10, from Belmont Middle School, Hibbert Road, Harrow, and 14-year-old Lana Redmands, from Nower Hill High School, George V Avenue. They won family VIP tickets to the pantomime.
The children's pictures will appear in a Cinderella-theme exhibition alongside other deserving creations at the arts centre from Monday, December 7, to Sunday, January 10, while the pantomime runs from Friday, December 18 until Wednesday, December 23.
