More than 1,000 pieces of creative writing and artwork tackling the theme of race equality and cultural diversity were celebrated at the finals of the Arts and Minds Awards 2012.

The competition encourages primary, secondary and special school students to use their creativity to promote discussion and debate about important issues such as tackling racism, prejudice and inequality.

It is organised by the NASUWT teaching union and supported SecEd as well as organisations including Love Music Hate Racism and the Anne Frank Trust.

This year saw more than 1,000 entries submitted across the creative writing and art categories, and judges spent four days whittling them down to a final shortlist of 12. The overall UK winner was chosen this year by television presenter Gok Wan.
