A Weston artist will have his work displayed in America.
James Richardson made the shortlist after hundreds of artists from across the globe applied to have their work showcased at the Royal Geographical Society's explorers against extinction display in London. The exhibition will then go to New York next year.
The sketch for survival challenge aims to highlight the ecological challenges some species face in their fight for survival.
James said: "I am absolutely delighted to have fought off tough competition. The panel of judges said they were impressed with my work.
"I chose to sketch a lion as graffiti on a wall being painted over by a worker, it was more of a street art idea and quite Banksy looking."
