A BOY called Charlie has won a golden ticket of a different kind after winning a dinosaur drawing competition.

The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum ran the competition to celebrate the launch of the Dinosaurs Uncovered exhibition.

Hundreds of children between the ages of 2 and 12 got messy creating their own prehistoric creatures.

Ten pictures were shortlisted for their impressive imagination and creativity, and four-year-old Charlie Taylor Smith was crowned the winner.

His prize was a ticket to the exhibition, as did the other nine finalists, and £50 worth of dinosaur goodies.

The Dinosaurs Uncovered exhibition allows visitors to travel back 250 million years, and discover some of the most iconic and awe inspiring creatures to walk the Earth. It runs until January 6, 2013.
