Moray children’s artwork set to light up St Giles until Christmas

Children’s artwork on show until Christmas

Moray children will see their artwork up in lights as a result of a unique competition organised by Elgin Bid and the Elgin Benevolent Trust.

The ‘Illuminated Art Competition’ will see the winning images projected onto the walls of buildings in Elgin City Centre.

All the winning entries will be displayed from this weekend at the St Giles Shopping Centre and remain on show until Christmas.

Gill Neill, manager of the Elgin BID, said: ” We were delighted by the number of entries we received and would like to thank all the schools and parents who supported us.

“We will be displaying all of the entries in the St Giles Shopping Centre from Saturday 15th November until Christmas so that the children can bring friends and family along to see what they did.”

A total of 146 entries were received from children aged between two and 14-years-old, all with a Winter or Christmas theme which result in a wide range of styles and designs.

Gill said: “The judging panel were amazed by the skill shown and the great ideas used.”

The winning entries and runners-up whose work will be beamed on buildings were:

Five years and under – winner was Chloe Green aged 2 with joint runners-up Eva Ingram aged 4 and Isla Franklin aged 5.

Six to eight years – winner was Lewie Austin aged 8 and runner up Anya Stephen aged 8.

Nine to 11 years – winner was Millie Cumming and Caleigh Docherty aged 11 with runner up Jodie Park also aged 11.

12 to 14 years – winner was Marnie Grant aged 12 and runner up was Sophie Adam aged 14.
