Diamond Jubilee Emblem
Today's big arts story in the UK is that the Queen's official 2012 Diamond Jubilee emblem has been released. 10-year-old Katherine Dewar won Blue Peter's nationwide competition with this design, chosen from 35,000 entries. Her design incorporates all the essential elements - title, crown, flag, diamonds and 60 years - in a simple and instantly recognizable image. If only she had designed the 2012 London Olympiad logo, which hasn't improved with age. Katherine is as cute as a button and brimming with self-confidence, as you can see from the BBC video (title link). Well done, Katherine. Congratulations.
