IVOR GOODSITE

Ivor Goodsite Hoarding

Competition 2015 nowopen!

The annual Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition has returned for its third year,

encouraging contractors to engage with their local communities by asking them to design

and decorate hoardings, turning them into much-loved works of art.

The popular competition, fronted

by industry mascot Ivor Goodsite, is

now

open for entries

and available

to any site, company or supplier

registered with the Scheme.

Last year,

45 contractors

took

part in the competition which saw

more than

2,500 children

getting

creative with paint brushes, pencils

and even their hands and feet to

decorate their local site’s hoarding.

The competition provides an

opportunity for

people of all

ages

to showcase their passion

for art and design with the added

bonus of the decorated hoardings

becoming a much-loved feature in

their respective towns.

Edward Hardy, Chief Executive of

the Scheme said: “For the last two

years, the Hoarding Competition

has proven to be a successful

innovation in providing a fun way

for contractors across the UK to

promote site safety and engage

with their local communities.

We need more young people to

get into the industry, so we hope

the competition will continue to

encourage children in particular

to learn about how exciting our

industry is and even possibly be

the incentive for some to consider a

career as they become older.”

Construction sites, companies and

suppliers who are interested in

getting involved have until 1 May

to complete an entry form. The fee

to enter the competition is £425

(+ VAT).

Contractors should then

organise an event with their local

community to design and decorate

their hoarding based around a

chosen theme.

Once the hoarding is decorated,

contractors will need to submit

photos and information on their

event to the Scheme by 5 June

when the winning entries will be

selected by a judging panel.

All entries will receive Ivor Goodsite

prizes to give to the participants

including trophies, medals,

certificates and Ivor fun packs!
