Small’s Fifth Element was also adjudged Most Colourful Band in the junior category as Crop Over 2017 nears its climax.

Veteran designer Gwyneth Squires had to settle for second place in the Best Junior Band category with her portrayal of Kites At De Garrison Savannah. In the individual categories, however, Squires maintained her firm grip on the annual competition as she captured the Junior King and Best Flag Person awards.

The Junior Queen award went to the Young Spirits Community Group, which also copped the Community Costume, Fantasy, and Best Couple awards with their Colour Me Crop Over.

Budding designer Sanka Price also did well with his A Living Legend & His Music – A Tribute to the Mighty Gabby, which won in the historical, topical and folklore categories.

Several other prizes were announced, including  the best environmental depiction, which went to Andrew Quimby & Adanna Robertson-Quimby for their portrayal of Our Cultural Environment.

The Best School Band was the Arthur Smith Primary School with Bring Ya Colours and Come, designed by Keisha Grannum.
