Celebrating diversity across our communities with Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition

Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition has returned for its 8th year!

This competition invites Scheme-registered organisations to encourage people of all ages to unleash their artistic abilities on construction site hoardings throughout the UK and Ireland.

Not only is the competition a fantastic opportunity for community engagement, it also gives sites a chance to brighten their local community with unique works of art and inspire them to think about becoming a part of our industry.

In an extra-special effort to really focus on community, this year we’re asking everyone to get creative with their hoarding using the theme of ‘celebrating diversity across our communities’.

All entries should strive to demonstrate the benefits that we can all experience when we embrace diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. Whether it’s where we live, work or play, we’re all part of a community, so let’s celebrate its diversity with imaginative artwork on your hoardings!

Last year 83 sites took part in the competition, engaging around 6000 children and adults.
