Primary school pupils from schools around Shetland have been busy creating works of art as part of a competition to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next month.

Living Lerwick have received over120 entries from around the isles on the theme of Her Majesty visiting Shetland. The entries have included images of The Queen in many locations around Shetland and taking part in plenty of activities.

The hard task of choosing winners from each age category was the challenge of Lauren Bulter of Laurel Art & Design and Carol Jamieson from Spiritual Matters, both based in The Mission Creativity and Wellness Centre.

9 winners were selected for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each age category, with an additional commended entry selected reflecting the high quality of submissions.

The winning entries will be on display on Commercial street until the Peerie Jubilee Spree celebrations on the weekend of 4th June. Pictures will be in the window of the former RSM offices at the north end of da Street, and on the Living Lerwick website.

Living Lerwick Project Assistant, Joanne Williams said “It’s been fantastic to see all the pictures coming in – the pupils have really engaged with the task and it looks like they’ve had a lot of fun imagining what the Queen would do on her holidays in Shetland!

It’s been a tough job choosing the winners and we would like to thank everyone for their great efforts.”
