Cover design competition winner announced

A budding young dyslexic artist has had her drawing chosen for the cover for Dyslexia Scotland’s latest magazine.

10 year old Layla created the artwork as part of a national competition and it will now feature on the autumn edition of Dyslexia Voice which is distributed to all Dyslexia Scotland members.

The edition carries the theme of ‘dyslexia around the world’ due to be released in October, which is celebrated annually as worldwide dyslexia awareness month.

Layla’s design features a globe surrounded by people with occupations that use well-known dyslexic strengths.

Dyslexia Scotland National Development Officer Lena who judged entries to the competition said, “We were impressed by the quality of all of the entries. Layla’s stood out to us because it captured the theme of the magazine so well, highlighting the positive contribution that people with dyslexia make all over the world.”

Layla’s mum Clare said, “Layla is delighted to have won and this has given her a confidence boost.”

Dyslexia Voice magazine is due out in October for members of Dyslexia Scotland and it features perspectives on dyslexia across the world, with features from Australia, Bali, Canada, Kenya and New Zealand as well as articles from Scotland and Europe.
