2014 Fringe Schools Poster Competition

erin_shortlist_posterIn an amazing achievement, Erin has been shortlisted from 3,400 participants to exhibit her work at Edinburgh’s ‘Museum of Childhood’ on the Royal Mile from 23 May until 25 August – make it a date if you can.

The Fringe Schools Poster Competition is one of the longest-running arts outreach projects in Scotland. It was launched in 1980 and since then over 100,000 young people aged from 5 – 16 across Scotland have put their artistic and creative talents to the test to create a poster that reflects what the Fringe means.

Each year, the shortlisted posters are displayed in a special exhibition in Edinburgh throughout the summer. The winning design becomes the official poster for that year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe and is used for a range of merchandise, from postcards and magnets to mugs and t-shirts.

Shona Johnston the Art Teacher said, I really enjoy offering this competition to pupils as it is a particularly ideal Curriculum for Excellence project covering all bases. The competition is a valuable teaching aid and experience for all of our pupils from 5 – 16. The pupils love it – a real design brief with excellent resources available and the incentive to win money. It is a project I always look forward to working on.

Thank you and well done to all who took part. Erin, take a bow!
