A work featuring an electric fan has been named the winner of this year's Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize.

Antony Williams, who created the painting Still life with electric fan, scooped the main prize of £15,000.

The young artist award of £2,500 was presented to Naomi Grant for Self Portrait.

The awards, which have been running for seven years, are designed to "encourage creative representational painting and promote the skill of draughtsmanship".

With prize money totalling £25,000, there were also runner-up awards for Peter Brown, Peter Clossick, Christopher Green, Rachel Ross and Melissa Scott-Miller.

This year's judges included visiting research fellow at Tate Britain Andrew Wilton, artist Ken Howard and art critic William Packer.

They have also selected 98 works, which will be exhibited at the Mall Galleries in central London from 28 March, before moving to the WH Patterson Gallery on 23 April.

Last year London-based artist Rachel Levitas won the main prize of £15,000 for her painting, Urban Fox III.
