Three budding designers have been rewarded for their efforts after taking top prizes in a poster competition at the Cardiff Story Museum.
The Hayes-based museum asked children to design a poster to help promote it as a free family day out during the school holidays, attracting entries from youngsters and schools across the city.
But the competition was won by 10-year-old Nathan Morris, whose poster featured a time machine with a backwards clock. as well as highlighting some of the stories told by the museum such as a young evacuee, and a boat signifying migration.
Competition judge Janey Howell said: “We were looking for a really eye-catching design. It was really difficult to choose the winner, but Nathan has done a fantastic job, portraying the themes of time travel and investigating the past. It’s clear that a lot of effort went into his design.”
Nathan’s poster will now appear across the city to promote the Cardiiff Story, and he has also won a private tour of the museum for himself and his family.
He will be joined there by second and third prize winners Alisha Khan and Emma Reavell, both 10, and all three will have tea with the museum’s curators Lucie Connors and Arran Rees.
Cardiff council’s cabinet member for sport, leisure and culture Councillor Huw Thomas added: “It was fantastic to see so many great entries to this competition. The museum has only been open two years and already become a firm favourite with children and families. I would urge anyone who hasn’t been yet to pay a visit – not only is it great fun but entry is free.”
