”The response to our Poster Art competition was amazing. The artists were
incredibly talented and I certainly didn¹t envy our judges having to
choose the top three!
This competition wouldn¹t have been possible without our wonderful
partners and I’d like to give a special shout out to Scan for being one of
the first to recognise the value of investing in future talent this way.
