About the Competition
The first Roundel Competition was introduced in 2017 and came about as a result of our wish to provide a unique and significant memento to our Lord Mayor speaker. With the blessing of former Lord Mayor and then Master Glazier, Sir David Wootton an open competition was launched, attracting talented professional stained and painted glass artists from across the UK. The competition brief is to create an original design symbolising both the role of the Lord Mayor of London and the interests and achievements of that year’s speaker.
In 2018, the competition was extended to include pupils to Year 6 and the Junior Sea Cadets in the London Area to submit design entries. In 2019, the young people’s competitions were expanded to encompass Sea Cadets, Army Cadet Force and Air Cadets – collectively known as the Community Cadet Forces. Since 2020, the #LMReflects Roundel competition consists of three streams: stained glass artists, Junior Sea Cadets and primary school pupils to Year 6 in schools in the United Kingdom.
