A YOUNG artist in the making has won a special prize for designing a picture perfect Father’s Day card.

Lillie Lloyd, aged six, from Prittlewell, entered the Echo competition, to design a Father’s Day card ahead of the day this weekend.

The entries were displayed in the Echo and at the Royals shopping centre, in Southend.

Readers then voted for their favourite, with Lillie’s card, pictured above, taking the title.

She has won her dad a Virgin hot air balloon ride for two people and a dining challenge at Bobby Jo’s diner, in Eastern Esplanade.
