People were encouraged to ‘paint, snap or doodle’ what they think makes Edinburgh great.

 

Royal Bank of Scotland created a competition to select a new image for the advertising site at Edinburgh Airport, following feedback that many visitors take photographs with the current image. People were encouraged to ‘paint, snap or doodle’ what they think makes Edinburgh great.

The 30 metre high canvas, located just outside of Edinburgh airport, is seen by around 10 million travellers every year and is one of the first things visitors see of Scotland.

In addition to the winning piece being displayed at Edinburgh Airport, the winner will receive £1500.

A final shortlist has now been selected by the bank’s Scotland Board. You can view the shortlisted entries alongside some words from their creator below.
