The acts, which included singers, dancers, gymnasts and a magician, were judged by broadcaster Steve Carpenter, Octagon arts and entertainment manager Adam Burgan and Western Gazette editor Emma Slee.
Miss Slee said: "I was absolutely blown away by the level of talent we have in this region. I was not expecting the standard to be so high. We found it extremely difficult to draw up the shortlist. All those who took part should be incredibly proud of themselves."
