“I am thrilled to act as champion artist for the 2018 Fringe Schools Poster Competition. This is a fantastic opportunity for students across Scotland to engage in design and expression. The competition encourages imaginative minds to action their creativity and ideas, using any artform that appeals to them. I’m really looking forward to seeing the diverse, inventive and original works that Scotland’s schoolchildren produce, reflecting their impressions of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.”
Following the relaunch of the competition for 2017, there was a remarkable increase in the number of schools participating, with more than half of schools entering the competition for the first time. We hope to see a huge response from schools across Scotland again in 2018, and I look forward to being inspired by the designs submitted.”
