Winning logo for Norwich beer festival revealed

The winning logo to be used at the 2012 Norwich beer festival has been unveiled – and it incorporates the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in its design.

Anthony Miles's very topical design of a dragon on a diamond will be used to promote the 35th Norwich & Norfolk Campaign For Real Ale beer festival on its usual range of merchandise of glasses and t-shirts.

Mr Miles, 44, from Aylsham, said: 'This was the first time I entered the competition so I was surprised to win. It had to be a design reflecting the Queen's Jubilee.'

The aviation engineer is a member of the festival's organising committee, but none of the judges were informed beforehand in case there was any cry of favouritism.

Festival organiser Martin Ward said: 'As usual we had many fine entries from all ages, including several newcomers who pitted their designs against our competition regulars.

'With a large number of entries, the judging process was again lengthy and difficult with many logo designs having significant merit. After due deliberation, a final short list of two designs was selected, with one particular design really standing out from the others.'

This year's beer festival runs from Monday, October 29 to Saturday, November 3 at its usual venue of St Andrews & Blackfriars Hall's, Norwich.
