Dragons fired imaginations at St George's primary in Edgbaston, West Midlands
In Urban Dragons, Year 3 pupils worked with two artists to explore how dragons might live in their city.
Second place went to Lees primary in Keighley, where pupils chose a theme based on traditional poems. In joint third place were two photography projects: pupils at Blandford St Mary first school in Dorset captured their school in unusual perspectives while a collaborative project between two London schools, Monson primary and Naima primary, explored the idea of personal identity.
St George's will receive pound;1,000, a camera and computer software. The prize money will be used towards a new arts suite and an open-air auditorium called The Dragon Theatre.
