Young artists are putting their mothers in the picture.

Durham's Prince Bishops Shopping Centre has launched a competition for primary school pupils to draw portraits to mark Mother's Day on March 6.

Entries will go on display in the windows of Bhs and Adams from Saturday, until 2pm on Monday, March 7.

Durham Mayor Councillor Mary Hawgood will judge the entries. First prize will earn the young artist's mother a pamper day courtesy of Toni and Guy and No7 at Boots and a bouquet from Flowers International.

They will also win a digital camera for their school, also from Boots, and a clothing voucher from Adams and an art pack from Stationery Box for themselves.
