The Department of Art and Design is delighted to announce that Ferryhill Primary School has a winner.
The jury of the Winter Windows Competition, a partnership between Edinburgh’s Christmas and the City of Edinburgh Council, selected Mahiya’s design of a ‘Fox in a Festive City’ from 255 submissions from school all over Edinburgh.
Mahiya was invited to the winners’ reception at the City Chambers and received a certificate from the Honourable Lord Provost himself. The judges were so impressed that, in addition, she received a special commendation from the Arts & Creative Learning team, who singled out her design out for the strong layout and use of colour.
Lorna MacDonald, the Principal Officer for Arts and Creative Learning at City of Edinburgh said
“The little urban fox and his wee footprints in the snow clinched it for me – really gorgeous and it looks stunning enlarged and lit up.”
Mahiya’s design is on display in West Parliament Square, just outside the registrar’s office at the City Chambers. If you happen to be in the Old Town over Christmas, please go and see it.
