Sophie Andow, of year eight, was praised for her ‘striking design’ that was picked to be recreated on the poster and programme for the annual event, which takes place in the town on Saturday, June 4.

As part of their coursework, students were asked to base their designs on Russian constructivism.

Festival organiser Ruud Jansen Venneboer, of Mazzard Farm, said: “Some fabulous work was produced by the students and the judging panel had a hard job deciding which one was best.

“After some serious deliberations, and short-listing 11 candidates, the winning piece was selected. Sophie was chuffed to be told the great news. The striking design will soon be visible all over Ottery and in the immediate area around the town.”
