The Drum has joined forces with the Publicity Club of Glasgow and Allied Media to launch a competition for creatives based in the Greater Glasgow area to design the full livery of a brand new Sunshine Coach funded by the Glasgow Publicity Club's charitable activities.
The overall winner of the competition will see their design brought to life by the competition's main sponsor, Allied Media, which will pay for the new £13,000 coach to be fully decorated, before it is handed over to its new owners, the Kelbourne School in Maryhill, at the Glasgow Publicity Club's Christmas lunch to be held on 14 December.
The Kelbourne school takes care of more than 50 primary-school-aged children with a wide range of special needs and physical and mental handicaps.The school was identified after a ten-month search as being most in need of a new vehicle by members of the Publicity Club of Glasgow, which also wanted the coach to be decorated in a way which will reflect the creative nature of those people who funded it.
The competition, titled 'Doing It For The Kids', is completely free to enter and is open to any creative, design or advertising agency or freelancer based within the Greater Glasgow area.The entry pack for the competition will contain the full spec of the vehicle to be liveried - a Ford Transit mini-bus - together with all the competition's rules.
Entry packs for the competition are available from Kevin Gallagher at S&UN and can be obtained from him by phoning 0141-353 3366.All entries must be received at The Drum's offices by midday on Wednesday 28 November 2001 to be included in the competition.
Judging will take place the following day when the judging panel, consisting of Kevin Gallagher of S&UN, Gerry Facenna of Allied Media, Iain Forbes of The Variety Club Scotland, Roberta Doyle of the National Galleries of Scotland, John Leslie of the Scottish Daily Record and Sunday Mail and Richard Draycott of The Drum, will decide on the winning design.
The winner will ultimately be the design which best reflects the 'Doing It For The Kids' ethos.
