Morven Donald, aged 13, from Park Mains High School in Erskine has been announced as the winner of the Edinburgh Fringe’s annual schools competition to design the Fringe poster.

Morven’s design was judged the best from over two and half thousand entrants to the competition, which is now in its thirtieth year. The design is not confined to the official Fringe poster, but is also on souvenir postcards, magnets, mugs and t-shirts.

Congratulating Morven on her win, Edinburgh Festival Fringe Chief Executive, Kath M Mainland, said: “the image is vibrant, colourful and full of energy – everything that the Fringe is.”

The winning poster, together with a selection of the short-listed posters will be on display at the Museum of Childhood from June 10th.

Mainland added: “It was encouraging to see such a high number of entrants this year, more than two and a half thousand from across Scotland, which shows a thriving enthusiasm for art amongst Scottish youngsters. The standard was extremely high so well done to all those who entered.

“Thanks also go to the teachers and pupils for all time and effort they put into entering the competition, Mackie’s of Scotland for helping to make this whole competition possible and the Museum of Children for hosting the exhibition.”
