Keep Swindon Tidy poster making

Can you design a poster to encourage us all to Keep Swindon Tidy?

Since the lockdown has eased, we've noticed that not everyone is making use of bins or taking their rubbish home, including disposable face masks which are ending up discarded in some areas. Posters encouraging people to keep areas tidy are shown to help reduce litter by helping change accepted norms.

So, Keep Swindon Tidy and Plastic Free Swindon are teaming up to create a gallery of posters to encourage everyone in Swindon to keep our town tidy. The gallery is open to entries from the 1st September 2020. Children and big children (adults) from across Swindon are encouraged to send in their designs.

Keep Swindon Tidy litter pick

Entries can address any litter theme (avoiding single use plastic/ wearing reusable masks/ taking litter home with you/ using the bins) and be relevant to a particular area (eg, Keep our Town Centre tidy/ Keep Haydon Wick Tidy), or for the whole of Swindon.

Send entries to **javascript protected email address** including name, age and the parish that you live in. We are going to keep building the gallery for the next six months. This means there is no closing date planned yet!

Old Town Gardens in blossom

This isn't a competition, it’s about co-operation. All entries will be displayed with the name and age of the artist on our gallery page. As the gallery grows, the posters will be available for other residents, community groups and schools to download, print off and display, to encourage us all to help keep our neighbourhoods looking lovely.

Credit to artists will be given where possible when printed, but all entrants accept that their design may be reproduced without credit upon emailing it to the given address. Entries can also be removed at **javascript protected email address**, if required. Please contact us with any questions.

We have written to all parishes and the council asking them to compliment this activity by displaying posters in public areas.

We're so looking forward to seeing the inspiring and imaginative designs that Swindon's budding artists send in!

Draw the change that you want to see in the world!
