International Compost Awareness Week 2014: poster competition
Draw a poster promoting food composting.
As part of International Compost Awareness Week 2014, Leicestershire Master Composters are organising a free UK-wide poster competition to promote composting. The subject of this year's event is food waste and the poster should promote composting as a means of reducing the amount of food waste sent to landfill sites from homes across the country.
The poster can illustrate any aspect of composting relating to food waste and could show:
- composting of uncooked vegetable kitchen waste in Bokashi bin
- a cold composting system using a compost heap, bin or wormery
- hot composting of uncooked and cooked food in an Hotbin, Green Johanna or Jora home composter
- larger scale composting of food waste in a school, pub or cafe using a larger Jora, Scotspin, Ridan or Rocket.
When creating the poster, please remember that the winning posters will be published on national websites and may be reproduced to promote composting by different organisations. Please ensure that entries are in strong colours so that they will not lose impact when scanned.
Who can enter?
Entries are invited from schools and young people between the ages of 4 and 18. The full name, address and age of each entrant must be submitted. Entries from schools should also include the name of the school and the contact details of the teacher.
