Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition 2019 – Photo’s and Write-ups must be in by 14 June!

The Hoarding Competition invites registered sites, companies and suppliers to encourage children and people of all ages to channel their ‘inner Picasso’ and paint collaborative masterpieces on construction site hoardings throughout the UK and Ireland.

Any organisation that is registered with the Scheme can enter the competition and invite a local school, college or community group to help them design and decorate their hoardings, converting them into vibrant murals to brighten their local areas.

A record 89 sites took part in our 2018 competition, engaging over 4,500 children and adults in creating eye-catching, unique works of art.

Last year’s winning sites chose a plethora of creative, unique themes which gave the judges plenty to think about. These themes included: ‘Unity and Equality’, ‘Save Our Planet’, ‘Confidence and Self Esteem’, ‘Space – A Never-Ending Dream’ and ‘Site Safety is a no-brainer’.


The entry fee is £400 (+ VAT) for sites with a project value of £5m and over. This fee includes two Ivor Goodsite promotional signs, two A2 posters and a banner to promote your entry in the competition, along with prizes for up to 50 participants.

Sites with a project value under £5m can enter the competition for a reduced fee of £225 (+ VAT), which includes one promotional sign, one A2 poster, a banner and prizes for up to 25 participants.


The deadline for submitting your entry form and paying for your entry is 3 May.

All participants will need to submit at least five photos of your hoarding and an event details form to the Scheme by the 14 June; the winning entries will then be selected by a judging panel.

Both forms need to be sent to by their respective deadlines.


Competition winners and runners-up will receive a multitude of prizes including trophies, medals, certificates, fun packs and inclusion in our annual Hoarding Competition Brochure.

This year, the Scheme will be introducing ‘Ivor’s Choice Awards’ to the Hoarding Competition. ‘Ivor’s Choice Awards’ will recognise special efforts put in by sites from both entry bands.

In addition to this, all winners will receive a special mention in the Scheme’s Industry Image newsletter and news stories on both the Ivor Goodsite and Scheme websites along with a free hire of Ivor Goodsite! The Scheme will also shout about your winning entry across all of our social media channels, giving it the recognition it deserves.

Additional prizes can be purchased should you require them.
