Poster competition

Started in 2008, the Poster Competition is part of the One Act Festival and celebrates the design skills involved in producing high quality posters.

Poster Competition

We are aware of the range of talent needed for every production, not all of which gets the recognition it deserves. 

This competition is intended to celebrate one aspect of these skills and talents. 

The first winner was Fintry Amateur Dramatic Society who then donated the ‘Dunmore Trophy’ to be presented to future winners.

Independent judge(s) are appointed by SCDA – their decision if final.

The Dunmore Trophy is normally presented on the last evening at the Scottish One Act Play festival final where the top few posters will also be displayed.
