Twelve year-old Vincent Pitt, a first year at St Aloysius College in Glasgow, has won a hotly contested competition to design a poster for neighbouring mid-tier accountancy firm, French Duncan.
Organised in conjunction with the school’s Art & Design department, the competition generated 140 entries, resulting in seven class winners and Vincent being named the overall winner.
In addition to picking up the star prize of a £25 itunes gift voucher, Vincent’s winning poster design will now be turned into an advert for the accountancy firm.
Furthermore, each class winner won a £10 HMV voucher and all winners received a certificate and an open invitation to spend a morning at French Duncan’s Glasgow office.
Robert Kerr, Chairman of French Duncan, said: “Congratulations to Vincent for his winning design! We were delighted with the quality of the work on show from St Aloysius – the standard was exceptionally high – and very pleased to learn of the popularity of the competition.
“And we’re thrilled with the design for our new advert!”
The winning poster designs are now on show at a special exhibition at St Aloysius College.
