Designer Trash Competition

ARE YOU AN… ASPIRING ARTIST, IMAGINATIVE ILLUSTRATOR, GIFTED GRAPHIC DESIGNER, MULTI-TALENTED MEDIA DESIGNER OR JUST GENERALLY CAPTIVATED BY CREATIVITY?

Burnley Council are currently in the top quarter of all local authorities when it comes to successfully dealing with litter, dog fouling and fly tipping but we want to get even better, with your help to refresh our anti-littering artwork and slogan. The winning artwork and slogan will spearhead the new litter campaign which will be used by the council and their partners across the entire borough including websites, social media, posters, banners, stickers and even vehicle wraps.

The artwork and slogan will be used to discourage littering including chewing gum, fly tipping and dog fouling.

Brief

To produce a high-quality innovative design and slogan (suitable for print & social media) that the residents of Burnley can relate to, which instills civic pride in their hometown, making them think twice about littering whether that be dropping it, fly tipping it, spitting gum or not clearing up after their four-legged friend.

Using creative artwork to raise awareness of the negative affects littering has on our town, to call people to action and stop littering.

In a nutshell… It must relate to Burnley, spark pride in the town and to reducing littering.
