The 15th annual exhibition is organised and curated by arts society groups, Cantab and Granta, in association with the Cambridge Drawing Society (CDS).

Selected works by A-level and International Baccalaureate students in their last year of school are shown at the exhibition, which this year runs until Saturday (July 13).

The works are judged by artist James Horton, former president of the Royal Society of British Artists, with the chairperson and two members of Cambridge Drawing Society.
