Welcome to our first virtual Burns Day competition gallery. Well done to everyone who entered. Your poems, drawings and paintings have brought a big smile to our faces. What a talented bunch!

You were tasked with creating something inspired by Burns, Scotland or Scottish traditions. And you certainly did that!

Entries were split into three age categories and there’s a prize for the winner in each age group – a fantastic art tablet, kindly donated by Amazon UK in Edinburgh.

You can zoom in on any entry to take a closer look - simply click on the artwork or poem.

Age group – Up to 6 years

Kate is a member of the Royal Scottish Academy and her works are held in public collections across Scotland and worldwide.

Having lived for many years in the St Columba's community of North Edinburgh, Kate was thrilled to be our judge. The winners have been notified and we will be in touch direct to organise delivery of your prizes.
