Last Friday afternoon a special ceremony was held in the National Galleries of Scotland.

All of the winners in the Winter Windows competition run by Edinburgh’s Christmas were there to be recognised with a certificate. You can see all their wonderful designs in Princes Street Gardens just at the top of the steps leading down to the National Gallery of Scotland.

A number of special commendations were awarded, including Janis Allen-Bernad, Bruntsfield Primary School who won the Lord Provost Commendation; Elham Najib, Craigroyston Primary School who won the Arts & Creative Learning, City of Edinburgh Council Commendation; Nikola Kukawka, Braidburn Special School who won the Underbelly Commendation, Cailum Lumsden, James Gillespie’s High School who won the Toyota Commendation; and Kerry Willis, Queensferry Community High School who won the National Galleries of Scotland Commendation.

Edinburgh’s Lord Provost Donald Wilson said: “These artworks will be enjoyed by millions of people as they walk through Princes Street Gardens this winter. Edinburgh is well regarded as a creative city and this is certainly true of our schools. Children in the Capital are clearly bursting with artistic talent and the Winter Windows display celebrates the city’s pride in their artwork. Congratulations and well done to all of the inspiring entrants and winners. The festive display looks fabulous.”
