cycling in London

AOI and Transport for London organised an illustration competition to celebrate cycling!

Deadline for entries: 17 May 2010 by 5pm

Whoever you are and wherever you look a revolution is taking place. Cycling is quickly becoming a part of the fabric of everyday life in London. During Summer 2010, Transport for London will will join the revolution with the launch of its Cycle Superhighways and Cycle Hire Schemes as well as a host of other initiatives to improve cycle safety and security. In conjunction with these programmes, London Transport Museum and the Association of Illustrators are delighted to announce a call for illustrations featuring cycling as an emerging mode of transport in London.

Students and professionals are invited to submit entries that demonstrate the environmental, health and/or recreational benefits of cycling. It is the task of entrants to create an illustration that shows cycling as a fun and efficient way to get around the city.

The top three entries will receive a monetary award and may be used in an advertising campaign for cycling. The top 50 entries will be displayed in an exhibition at the London Transport Museum that will open in summer 2010 in conjunction with the launch of TfL’s cycling programmes.
