Congleton In Bloom- New Bin Stickers

Unleash your Creativity! Design a new poster for Congleton’s Bins!

Local people of all ages are being encouraged to unleash their creativity and help create some attractive and eye-catching posters to be used on bins around Congleton as part of this year’s In Bloom campaign.  The Congleton In Bloom team will choose the best designs and have them turned into vinyl stickers to use on some of the 160 bins around the town.

The designs need to be bright, bold and 2D. The message should be around keeping Congleton clean/using the bins. There is no age limit to this competition and entries can be by an individual or a group or even a family activity over the half-term! Entries should be submitted to the Town Hall by Monday 9th March.

Designs should be submitted so that they can be produced to A4 portrait size (210mm wide and 297 mm high). They can be submitted electronically or by hand/post. If submitting a paper copy, please add your name and contact details on the back of the entry so that you can be contacted if your design is chosen.

Chairman of Congleton in Bloom, Councillor David Brown, said: “We know we have lots of talented, creative people in Congleton and I am excited to see what ideas people will come up with. The bin sticker currently being was created in 2013 – so it really is time for a new look!”

“The beauty of digital print is we will not be limited to a couple of designs. As a group we are prepared to get several of the designs produced into vinyl stickers and will give recognition and a gift for all the published designs.”

Entries can be scanned and sent to info@congleton-tc.gov.uk or handed in to Congleton Visitors Information Centre in Town Hall by 5pm on Monday 9th March. All artwork must be original. The originators of the designs being used for the bins will be notified by the 20th March at the latest and will be invited to unveil their designs in the town centre.
