The winners are: Finley, 10, a pupil from New Horizons Academy; Millie, 12, from The Rowans AP Academy and Freya, three, from Fairview Pre-school.

The contest saw school-age children express pride in their local neighbourhood by creating a piece of art using the 'Love Medway' template.

Entries were submitted on social media and via schools and libraries.

They featured impressive interpretations of local culture, with illustrations of dancing Waghorn statues, languages spoken throughout the area, historic landmarks and dogs met during walks through Medway's parks.

Each winner will see their designs on billboards and banners across the area, expressing support for Medway's bid to be the UK's City of Culture 2025.

Medway will submit its bid this year, which is the equivalent for Medway of what the Olympic bid was for London.

The ambitious project is being led by locals across the area and backed by communities, residents, schools, businesses, charities and people across Medway.

The campaign invites everyone who lives, works or studies in the area to support the plans to bring Medway's history and talent to life in a 365-day creative and cultural programme across the Towns.
