People are being urged to vote for their favourite painting in a schools project which will see the winning entry made into a jigsaw puzzle.

Bicester-based games manufacturer Ravensburger launched a competition last month for schools in Bicester and the surrounding area.

The winning school will have their picture made into 500, 1,000-piece puzzles which can be sold for £10 each to raise money for the school.

Ravensburger’s marketing manager Benn Bramwell said: “The competition helps provide children with a creative activity to benefit them and their school.

“We are really impressed with the standard of entries. The children have put a lot of effort into these paintings.

“It’s going to be hard to pick a winner.”

Voting opens today and runs until April 22.
