Thank you to everyone who entered work into the Shetland Open. We had over 110 entries and the standard is incredibly high. Over 30 of these entries were for the Bairns Open for school age children and these can be seen in the Lower Gallery at Bonhoga, while the rest is in the Upper Gallery and stairwell. All the work was judged by two independent arts professionals and the prizes were announced at the opening on Friday evening to a packed gallery.
 
The prize winners are:
