The pupils of Brae High School, Shetland came first, second and third in Section 4.
Children’s book illustrator John Fardell who judged the competition was highly impressed with the hundreds of entries which were sent in.
This week’s photograph shows Willam Ewins’ entry. Three year old William who came first in the Infant’s section will be at the Castle accompanied by his parents and grandfather to collect his prize.
The competition held to mark World Animal Day on 4th October has proved so successful that the One o' Clock Gun & Time Ball Association committee has decided to hold a painting competition next year.
