Four artists have been celebrated by the local community after being chosen as the winners of the Orana Arts Soup Sessions.
Tyrolin Puxty, Chantelle Buttigieg, Tayla Martin and Felicity Cavanough were named as the winners of the first online Soup Sessions.
They were chosen based on the high level of engagement their project pitches received on social media.
Orana Arts executive director Alicia Leggett said the comments and shares on social media allowed the audience to become the biggest cheerleader for the participants.

"We didn't shy away from letting our followers know that artists needed to be supported during these challenging times, by providing links to donate. That as a sector we needed to see them working and creating to support their practice," she said.
This was was the first online Soup Session and Ms Leggett said she was happy with the number of artists who took part.
"We got more than we expected, we had hoped to create more of online engagement with ourselves and the artists but that portion of the program will take time, but in the end, the highlight was seeing how many people took on the role to promote the pitches and the artists," she said.
