The Sutherland competition took place across September and October 2017, with judging taking place on Monday October 30th
at Drummuie in the county. Entries were received from as far afield as New Zealand Japan and Sweden with many featuring the county’s wildlife. The next step will be to “finesse” the art work, the winning design will then be manufactured with a formal unveiling and presentation ceremony held in the new year.
