Bank of Ireland yesterday announced the 320 silver ticket winners who have made it through to the regional finals for its annual Junk Kouture competition.

The competition - which is open to students nationwide - saw a surge of 18pc in entries this year, making it the biggest competition to date.

Now in its sixth year, the fashion and art competition challenges secondary school students across the country to create the most weird and wonderful outfits from recycled materials and junk.

The regional finals take place on March 9.
