Young & Powerful 23 Oct 2018 – 06 Jan
Gallery One

Young & Powerful is a national campaign empowering young people across Scotland to express their opinions and inspire their peer group with the power of design and communication.

The campaign of hands-on workshops, a national poster competition and celebratory exhibition offered young people age 8-26 in Scotland a platform to tackle key issues which affect their lives with thoughtful and engaging communication.

The exhibition highlights 80 posters from the competition which tackle: equality, activity and health, the environment, education, the power of young people and improving Scotland.

The competition ran between March-July 2018 and received 1535 entries from all over Scotland. All posters were judged by independent panels of creative leaders, young people and decision makers in Scotland who selected posters for the exhibition and the winners within each age category (8-12, 13-16, 17-21 and 22-26) will be awarded a cash prize at the exhibition opening on the 22nd October.
