In 2015 we had just over two thousand entries, this year we had over six thousand!
Each and every one was packed full of festive charm. A massive well done to all the children who took part! It was tough, but after much deliberation we have finally picked our winners.
The Key Stage 2 category was so hotly contested that we have awarded a few runners up places. Each runner up will receive this winter's must have fashion accessory - a Purple Mash t-shirt.
The end of the competition isn't the end of the festive fun, it's only just beginning - count down to Christmas with the Purple Mash advent calendar.
There’s nothing left to do now but show show show you the winners…
Winner of the under 8s category: Amani, Newbridge Preparatory School
We loved the vibrant colours and use of shape. It's a fantastic example of how to use the 'Swirly' canvas in 2Paint a Picture. The multi-coloured 'Merry Christmas' message is a superb finishing touch. Great work!
Winner of the under 12s category: Danny, Pelton Community Primary School
This painstakingly crafted piece uses an '8-bit' effect and is simply unbelievable. It's the subtle attention to detail that makes this such a masterpiece, particularly the use of shadows. Fantastic work!
