editorial image

Christmas and New Year are coming! How would you like to help us design the Christmas and New Year editions of the Stornoway Gazette?

We are asking all of our under 12 readers to take part and design us a Christmas and New Year banner to appear on the front page of the Gazette.

Last year Annie Maciver who was in Primary 3 at Stornoway Primary School designed our Christmas banner and Matthew Macleod, who was in Primary 7 at Leverhulme Memorial School designed our New Year banner.

Will your design be the winning one this year?

The design of the Christmas banner should have a Christmas theme, perhaps this would include a Snowman, Presents, Santa or the Nativity.

Banner dimensions

A theme for the New Year banner could be a party, Old Father Time or Fireworks.

Your banners must fill a box with the dimensions: 4cm high and 26.5 wide (no bigger).

Send your festive banners to: Melinda Gillen, Editor Stornoway Gazette, Unit 7, Harbour View, Cromwell Street Quay, Stornoway, Isle of Lewis HS1 2DF.

The deadline for submissions to our Season’s Greetings Competition is no later than 5pm on Monday, December 19th.

The winning design will be chosen by the editor.
