2014 Fringe Schools Poster Competition
In 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.
Further details can be found online at: https://www.edfringe.com/about-us/poster from 22 May.
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!
