School pupils across Shetland have been creating art pieces as part of a competition to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Around 120 entries were submitted to Living Lerwick based around the notion of the Queen visiting the Shetland Islands.

Many of the pictures created by the children show the Queen at various iconic locations on Shetland doing various activities.

The hard task of deciding the winners from each age category fell to Lauren Bulter of Laurel Art & Design and Carol Jamieson from Spiritual Matters.

Pupils aged between six and 12 competed across three age categories, with nine winners chosen.

The winning entries will be on display on Commercial street until the Peerie Jubilee Spree celebrations on the weekend of June 4.

‘Pupils have really engaged with the task.’

The winners were:

  • Age 3-5: Iona Noerregaard 1st
  • Age 3-5: Malin Tallack 2nd
  • Age 3-5: Shay Harries 3rd
  • Age 3-5: Lena Pottinger Commended
  • Age 6-8: Theo Wishart 1st
  • Age 6-8: Raya Johnson 2nd
  • Age 6-8: Ruby Johnston 3rd
  • Age 6-8: Alfie Tulloch Commended
  • Age 9-12: Renee Lim 1st
  • Age 9-12: Judith Jamieson 2nd
  • Age 9-12: Emily Watt 3rd
  • Age 9-12: Hannah Wells Commended

Living Lerwick project assistant, Joanne Williams said: “It’s been fantastic to see all the pictures coming in – the pupils have really engaged with the task and it looks like they’ve had a lot of fun imagining what the Queen would do on her holidays in Shetland!

“It’s been a tough job choosing the winners, and we would like to thank everyone for their great efforts.”

Jubilee celebrations in Lerwick will occur throughout May, including an augmented reality window trail and colouring competition in partnership with High Street Safari.

The Peerie Jubilee Spree on Saturday, June 4 will include a great line of local bands, carnival games and face-painting.
