Diamond Jubilee Design Competition
Prizemoney of £500 is being given away as part of our Diamond Jubilee Design Competition, in association with Viridor recycling and waste management.
The contest offers a unique prize - and £100 cash for the winner and £250 for their school. Entrants are invited to create a design for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with the winning entry blown up in size to 4.6m x 2m and displayed on the side of a Viridor collection lorry – boasting the number plate V60 HRH – throughout the jubilee period and all summer.
The winner will also receive a large-scale model of the Volvo lorry carrying the design worth about £200 and three runners-up will receive prizes of £50.
Richard Jenkins, regional director for Viridor in the South West, said: “We have a fantastic summer ahead with the jubilee and major sporting events, so we wanted to get in the spirit of things with help from school children across Somerset.
“The winning jubilee-themed design will be used on a truck collecting recycling and waste materials from businesses right across the county, and will stay on the vehicle throughout the summer.
“We’re looking for something that is eye-catching, bold and celebrates the Queen’s 60 years on the throne – good luck!”
We would also like to raise the profile of any school taking part in the competition by photographing pupils working on their designs – just reply to this email to book a time for the picture.
Viridor was founded in Bridgwater in 1956 and is now based in Taunton at Great Western House near the station. It has grown into one of the UK’s leading recycling companies employing 3,200 people nationally.
