City's young artists go wild.
The painting competition, judged by the city management company, CV One, asked youngsters to create a picture on the theme of "wildflowers", to encourage them to think about their local environment and what makes it attractive.
The competition, organised by the Heart of England Tourist Board, will form part of Coventry's Britain in Bloom entry.
Coventry entered the Britain in Bloom competition for the first time last year and won silver.
The paintings were judged at a local level by CV One and English Landscapes.
All entries will now be put forward to the regional Britain in Bloom competition.

First prize in the age four to seven category went to Kavita Patel, of Ravensdale School, Wyken, for her poppy picture and second prize went to Ellie Minett, of 56th Allesley Rainbows, for her sunflower painting.
