There's also an additional prize of £50, courtesy of Creative Royston, for the entry that best reflects this year's competition theme - 'Our Planet'.

University of Hertfordshire student, Kate Bieriezjanczuk, received the top prize for her entry 'At Dawn' in last year's competition.

RAS member Rachel Haynes said: "We had many disappointed young artists last year who were out of catchment for the competition, so we opened it up to a wider audience so no one misses out on the opportunity."

Competition entries close on July 31, with the winner being notified after judging on August 31.

Online entries can be submitted at www.roystonarts.org.uk
