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 Gazete. Last year Anna Macleod, who was in Primary 3 at Sgoil Shiabost designed our Christmas banner and Morgan Don, who was in Primary 6 at Sgoil an Rubha 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.

A theme for the New Year banner could be a party, fireworks, or images of what’s to come such as the Chessmen pieces going on display at the new Lews Castle Museum in 2016.

Your banners must fill a box with dimensions 4cm high and 26.5 wide (no bigger please as this will be the size of the banner).

Send your festive banners to: The Editor, 10 Francis Street, Stornoway, HS1 2XE. The deadline for submissions is 5pm on Monday, December 21st.

The winning design will be chosen by the editor.
