The RPRA’s ‘Design a Logo’ competition for HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012 attracted nearly 300 entries from all over the country, each of a very high standard.
A short-list of finalists was drawn up for each of the three categories – Under 11 (Primary Schools), Ages 11-16 (Secondary Schools), and Adult – and presented anonymously at the RPRA Council meeting in October, where the Councillors voted for their preferences. The results (with appropriate images left to right) were as follows:
