It was the 11th year of artistic students from across East Cambridgeshire displaying their pieces at Babylon Arts Gallery in Ely.
More than 120 talented youngsters from across the district had their work framed on the walls of the community craft centre at Waterside.
The exhibition is supported by Ely Hereward Rotary Club and its president, Christine Gascoigne, was there on Januaryt 9 to announce the prize winners, from six key stages, ranging from children aged four to 18.
Each prize winner received vouchers for art materials, donated by Tindalls Ltd and Ely Hereward Rotary Club.
The exhibition showcases the work of children from ten schools and includes drawings, paintings, textiles, photography, ceramics and multi-media work.
It will run from January 10 to January 25.
The event was started by local artist Ted Coney in 2009 as a chance for teachers and parents to celebrate their child's work.
