Imagine having your art work blown up as big as a bus and exhibited all over town and beyond.
Well that's exactly what has just happened to four talented Bega Valley school students.
The winners of the Sapphire Coat Buslines 'Cruise Ship Cruiser Bus Wrap' competition were revealed earlier this week resulting in pupils from Pambula Public School and Lumen Christi Catholic College having their creativity travelling all round town.

The competition opened in September and called for school students from across the Sapphire Coast to create colourful and striking designs that would cover the buslines' two Cruise Ship Shuttle buses.
The grand unwrapping of the colourfully wrapped buses took place at both schools on Tuesday, November 5 at Lumen Christi Catholic College and at Pambula Public School on Thursday, November 7.
Lumen Christi student Lily Dixon's pastel coloured underwater sea garden took out the marine theme, while Pambula Public School pupils; Amali Alcock, Imogen Osten and Elli Sky Delhunty's vibrant art was chosen for the Rich Aboriginal History theme.
Sapphire Coast Buslines' Marketing and charter coordinator Michelle Caldwell said students from seven schools across the Bega Valley took up the challenge.
"There were plenty of different designs. There were heaps of whales, starfish and under water themes. With so much variety to choose from it was challenging for the judges to select the winning designs," she said.

Both school's art departments received a $500 voucher as part of the prize.
Ms Caldwell said the winning designs will stay wrapped on the buses for two cruise seasons stating there was still loads more room for anybody looking for bus advertising.
"The buses will greet passengers each time a cruise ship visits our beautiful region. The wraps are a wonderful opportunity to showcase the talents and artistic flair of our local students as well as pay tribute to our marine and Aboriginal history through art and design," Ms Caldwell said.
