Design poster for the Fringe

THOUSANDS of schoolchildren have been invited to design the official poster for this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Pupils at schools across the country are set to send in entries for a design showcasing the world’s largest arts festival.

Kath M Mainland, chief executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, said: “Each year, one talented young artist will see their design become the official poster for the Fringe, and there are prizes of up to £750 for the top three artists and their schools.”
