Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition 2018 winners announced!

Huge congratulations to everyone who took part in this year’s record-breaking Ivor Goodsite Hoarding competition!

The Hoarding Competition encourages anyone registered with the Scheme to invite local communities to help design and decorate their hoarding based on a chosen theme. The Competition provides a fantastic opportunity for contractors to engage with their local community, while promoting all that is positive about the construction industry.

Now in its seventh year, the Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition has gone from strength to strength, with more and more sites and companies entering each year. 2018 is no different with a record 89 entries and over 4000 school children and adults taking part.

The standard of artwork produced this year has been truly exceptional, with every entry showing an incredibly high level of creativity and innovation. This year saw a multitude of themes which include ‘Autism Awareness and Bringing the Community Together’, ‘Careers in Construction’, ‘Unity and Equality’ and ‘Space – A never-ending dream’.
