Winning medal announcement

Chloe is a winner ahead of Guernsey 2021

Chloe Sarre’s design for the Guernsey 2021 NatWest International Island Games medals has been voted as the winner ahead of the two other final designs from Matthew Allen and Joe Baines.

The medal design competition, which ran from 1 March - 31 May 2019, received over 70 entries. The top three designs were selected by a judging panel consisting of Dame Mary Perkins (chair of the Guernsey 2021 organising committee); Rob Girard (NatWest International) and three Island Games athletes - Tom Hollingsworth (swimming), Lisa Gray (archery) and Sarah Garbutt (badminton).

The judges were all impressed with the quality of the entires and it took some time to decide on the top three. Sarah Barbutt from badminton commented “I was looking for something which stood out as being completely  different from previous games medals but also showed elements of Guernsey in its design”.

The top three designs were submitted by Matthew Allen, Chloe Sarre and Joe Baines. The competition was then opened to a public vote, with over 1,600 votes received.

Chloe entered the competition after seeing the competition advertised online. Her design features the outline of Guernsey. The 24 segments on the outside circle represent the 23 member Islands and the IIGA all coming together in Guernsey to participate in the 2021 Games.

As well as the honour of seeing her design used for all of the medals during the Games, Chloe will also receive their own commemorative set of medals and will be given the opportunity to present the winners’ medals at one of the events during Games week. All of the shortlisted finalists will receive VIP tickets to the opening ceremony of the Games.
