WINNERS of design competition announced!

We are excited to announce the winners of our Design a Banner competition, launched June 2020!

We asked you to create a design for an original banner that celebrates the First Light Festival experience – we received a whole host of amazing designs! It has been a real pleasure to see all of your work; the variety of interpretation and creativity on show has been spectacular. However, only one individual from each category can be chosen.

Selected by our three judges, Wayne Hemingway (Hemingway Designs), Genevieve Christie (Director of First Light Festival) and Calvin Winner (Head of Collections at Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts), the winners are….

  • -Children – Elliot Hill
  • -Teens – Hannah Perry
  • -Young adults – Daisy Snow
  • -Adults – Daniel Triptik Jones


Congratulations! These winning designs will be produced and displayed as part of First Light Festival 2021. The judges’ overall favourite will also win two tickets to a First Light Festival event of their choice (programme to be announced). Shortlisted design entries from all categories will be exhibited in Lowestoft and showcased in our online gallery and social media.
