More than 100 primary school pupils braved the rain on Saturday to take part in the Little Red Dot-Beautex Life's Beautiful Art Competition.
The event, held at Gardens by the Bay, saw the kids putting on paper their interpretations of what makes life beautiful.
For seven-year-old Poojasree Bala Murugan, it was having "Grandma, Grandpa, the whole family together that makes life beautiful", she said.
The primary 1 pupil from St Margaret's Primary school eventually went on to win first place in the lower-primary category. The first prize in the upper primary category went to Lai Kit Mun, a primary 6 pupil from Mee Toh School.
First-placed winners take home a prize of $300, a camera and a hamper of Little Red Dot goodies. Second and third prize winners receive $200 and $100 respectively, as well as a hamper each.
The Straits Times executive artist Manuel Francisco said he thought the finalists "had a future in art", while Mr Richard Sim, vice-president of organiser Tipex, commented that "every year, the standard goes up".
All registration fees from the event will go to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund. Winning artworks will be printed onto special editions of tissue boxes and a donation from every pack sold will also go toward the fund.
