Each year, an art competition is held across the borough, with all primary schools eligible to enter the annual competition.
Organised by Rhondda Cynon Taf council and the Nos Galan Committee, pupils are asked to design and create a poster to come up with an image which encapsulates the atmosphere of the worldfamous Nos Galan Road Races, taking place on New Year’s Eve.

“Congratulations to Daniel on his winning entry, portraying the words Nos Galan written in the sky. The judges felt that this striking design fitted perfectly with the great success of our event, yearonyear.
