Owen Brannan (13), a pupil of Montrose Academy, is the Angus and Dundee winner of the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society Schools Poster Competition, supported by Virgin Money.

Chief executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society Kath M. Mainland said: “Owen’s design is fun, eye-catching, colourful and encapsulating the feel of the Fringe. This is a terrific achievement and something to be very proud of.”

The poster will be on show at the Museum of Childhood in Edinburgh in an exhibition which includes winners and shortlisted entries.

The overall winner of the competition will be announced at a prize-giving ceremony today at the Museum of Childhood. Every year, the winning design becomes the official poster for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and is used on mugs, bags and T-shirts and other merchandise.
