Adelaide Fringe and Schools Program Partner 9News are delighted to announce the winner of the 2021 Schools Poster Competition - Isabella, a Year 2 student at St Mary's College.
Isabella's artwork shows a girl at Adelaide Fringe with a star eye design representing a performer on stage. Her artwork was inspired by all the colours and lights at Adelaide Fringe and features handmade confetti.
Isabella's hobbies include netball, gymnastics, reading and painting. She is looking forward to going to Fringe next year with her family and friends to see acrobatics, dancing and magic shows.
This year there were 311 entries into the Schools Poster Competition from Government, Independent, Catholic and Homeschool systems. The students were from school classes between Years 1 and 10. Students were asked to show what they enjoyed about Fringe or what Fringe meant to them. The judging panel was impressed by the fantastic imagination, skills and creativity of the entries.
The Adelaide Central Market is hosting an exhibition of the Top 100 entries from 10-22 November on the North Eastern mural wall. Visitors to the exhibition can enter a competition to win a $250 home delivery pack from wills&daniel. The Top 100 will also appear as a special montage in a Fringe colouring-in book featuring Fringe posters from previous years. The book is available to pre-order here
Isabella's artwork will appear on the cover of the 2021 Schools Booking Guide, and thanks to Program Partner 9News, Isabella's class has won a performance by a 2021 Fringe artist.
