this spring, we are asking children from across the city to design their own ‘welcome to brighton' banner!
The winning designs will be displayed through the city centre from May to September above Western Road and North Street – Brighton’s premier shopping district – so will be seen by millions.
Entrants will be free to design whatever they like, so long as it’s big, bold and shows the essence of this vibrant city by the sea. Each entry must be A4 in size. The designs will need to be able to be digitally scanned, but any medium can be used, paint, crayon, pens etc. But remember, the designs will need to be seen from the street, so the bolder and simpler the better.
Entrants are asked to think about what makes this city great: Do you love the Lanes? Or maybe you prefer the North Laine? What’s your favourite tourist attraction? What hidden gem to you adore? Do you love the city for being environmentally friendly? Do you love it because it’s modern or because of its history?
here is how to enter!
All pictures have to meet the project title "Welcome to Brighton”
The competition is open to anyone of school age, including under 5's
All pictures should be on A4 and as bold and bright as possible (winning pictures will be blown up to 1m x 1.5m but remember, people still need to see them from the street)
We will not be able to return any entries, however, they can be scanned in high res and submitted on cd or via e-mail
We need to have the artists name/age/school/ on the back
Winning images will be displayed above Western Road/North Street from May 1st 2013 until the end of September
