Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition

Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition enables children of all ages to unleash their artistic skills on site hoardings which become large canvases for their imaginative creations.

Any organisation registered with the Scheme can enter the competition which runs from January to June and invite their local school, college or community group to help them design and decorate their hoardings and transform them into attractive murals.

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’.

Since its inception back in 2013, the competition has seen continued success with a record number of contractors taking part, engaging over 7000 children and adults in creating eye-catching and unique works of art.

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

We will also see the return of ‘Ivor’s Choice Awards’ to the Hoarding Competition. These awards will recognise the special efforts made by sites within both entry bands.

On top of this, all winners will receive a special mention in the Scheme’s Innovation Today 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 entries across all of our social media channels, giving it the recognition it deserves!

Additional prizes can be purchased should you require them.


The entry fee is £410 (+VAT) for sites with a project value over £5m. This fee includes two Ivor Goodsite promotional signs with Hoarding Competition stickers, 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 £230 (+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 8 May 2020.

All participants will need to submit their completed entry, including photos of their hoarding and an event details form to the Scheme by 12 June 2020. The winning entries will then be selected by Ivor and a judging panel.
