Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition

What is 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.

The theme of participants hoardings can be anything they wish! In past years we have had such themes as ‘Nature at its finest’. ‘Space – A never-ending dream’, ‘Confidence and Self-Esteem’ and ‘Autism Awareness’.

Since its inception back in 2013, the competition has seen continued success and a record 89 contractors took part in the contest in 2018, engaging over 4000 children and adults in creating eye-catching and unique works of art.

How much does it cost to participate?

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

Sites with a project value under £5m enter for a reduced fee of £225 (+VAT). This includes one promotional sign, an A2 poster and prizes for up to 25 participants. Any additional prizes can be purchased separately.
