Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition 2019 – Brochure now available!

2019 has been another successful year for Ivor Goodsite and his Hoarding Competition. The competition has had a huge amount of participants across the UK and Ireland with 83 entries submitted this year.

Ivor’s competition saw a large number of sites and companies take on poignant, hard-hitting themes to really drive a message across their communities with some stunning, impactful artwork. These themes included ‘Knife Crime’, ‘Children’s Mental Health’, ‘Remembrance’ and ‘Saving Our Planet’.

It’s been wonderful to see so many registered organisations engage with their local communities and use the competition to spread such important messages to their neighbours.

Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said:

“Massive congratulations to all winners and runners-up of this year’s Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition. This competition offers a tremendous opportunity for those registered with the Scheme to collaborate with local schools and community groups to provide colourful and creative works of art across hoardings. Construction site hoardings are the ‘shop window’ of the industry, and it is excellent to see, through this competition, so many hoardings being used to communicate really important messages across our communities.

“Thank you to all the Scheme-registered sites and companies for participating and making a real difference to the local communities impacted by construction activity. These efforts continue to help improve the image of construction, and we look forward to even more sites entering the competition in 2020 and beyond.”

It now gives the Scheme great pleasure to announce our 12 winners and six Ivor’s Choice Award winners for 2019 whose thought-provoking entries conveyed important messages about the society in which we live.
