Hundreds of children from up and down Scotland have entered this year's NFU Scotland’s farm poster competition.

Entrants were challenged to capture Scottish farming through the seasons in bright colours.

The huge task of judging the 300-plus entries fell to president Andrew McCornick and vice president Martin Kennedy.

The winner was nine-year-old Andrew Roan, from Boreland of Colvend at Dalbeattie - home of Roan's Dairy.

Runner-up was 11-year-old Lauren Brown from Walston Primary School, Elsrickle near Biggar (pictured top).

Andrew McCornick, president of NFU Scotland said: “What an incredible response to our competition that got hundreds of children thinking about the rural landscape around them. With over 300 entries, what a job Martin and I had on our hands.

"With huge support from schools and schoolchildren, it was clear from the posters that many youngsters know what happens in our countryside throughout the seasons - when harvest is; and when lambing and calving takes place - with many getting highly creative and colourful to showcase their ideas.

“Our winners both captured the changing colours in our countryside through autumn to winter; the lambs and calves in fields in the spring to beautiful sunsets and sunrises over the land that we farm.

The posters helped us appreciate that we really do live and work in a beautiful place.

“What a fantastic job all our entrants did in capturing how colourful and vibrant our countryside is. It was a genuine pleasure to judge so many bright and beautiful entries.”
