Angus youngsters can look forward to a 2022 treat after their success in a national wildlife art competition.

Pictures by local pupils were among almost 1,000 entries from 72 Scottish schools in the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust challenge.

Pupils created a piece of art showing a species of British game or wildlife in its natural habitat.

Angus schoolchildren impressed organisers with their skills.
