Could Your Campaign Influence Behaviour?

The winner of a new poster competition will see their artwork displayed on buses and trains across the Isle of Wight.

Launched today by the Isle of Wight Council in partnership with Southern Vectis and the Isle of Wight Community Rail Partnership, the competition challenges young people to design a poster that encourages good behaviour on public transport or at the roadside.

Poster competition categories

Category 1: Behave well on public transport
  • Avoid excessive noise (such as phones on speaker, or being noisy).
  • Don't be anti-social.
  • Take your litter with you and put it in a bin.
  • Don't disrupt or disturb other passengers.
Category 2: Stay smart on the roadside
  • Stay off your phone.
  • Don't mess around with friends when you cross the road.
  • Remove earbuds and headphones to focus when you cross the road.
  • Cross at the lights.

Lewis Campbell, the council's road safety officer, said:

"We really want to see some inspiring designs that will make people stop and think about good behaviour either on public transport or at the roadside.

"This is about helping to make everyone's journey on public transport more peaceful and enjoyable, as well as encouraging road safety.

"The winner will see their artwork displayed on buses and trains, where it will be seen by thousands of people! This is your opportunity to design a campaign that will really make a difference."

The competition is open to all secondary, sixth form and college students on the Island.

The closing date for entries is Tuesday, 30 April and full details can be found on the council's webpage.
