Virgin Money Fireworks Concert poster competition winners announced
Connor Taylor, aged 8 from Newbridge, Josh McKay, aged 9 from Edinburgh, and Tara Murphy, aged 10, also from Edinburgh were announced as the winners of the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert poster competition winners and will see their poster designs across Edinburgh in the months leading up to the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert.
Forth 1 DJs Boogie and Arlene from the Breakfast Show judged the entries on their bold, bright colours and shapes. Connor, Josh and Tara’s posters were praised by judges for encapsulating the spirit and character of the Concert, which forms the spectacular finale to Edinburgh’s summer festival season. The competition, supported by Virgin Money and Concert broadcasters Forth 1, is now in its 4th year and attracted hundreds of entries from children across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife. The winners were announced in a special unveiling at the Virgin Money Lounge, Edinburgh.
As well as seeing their designs throughout the city, the three winners will enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Fireworks set-up site at Edinburgh Castle and win a family ticket to the spectacular concert in Princes Street Gardens on Monday 31 August 2015 at 9.30pm.
