Coronation Generation: Design Challenge Launched

Award-winning educational charity, Ideas Foundation, has launched the Coronation Generation – a poster design challenge for schools and colleges across the UK.

Aimed at students aged 8 to 18, the Coronation Generation challenge invites schools and colleges to submit digital poster designs which reflect one or more of four key themes – community, diversity, sustainability and youth.

Over the Coronation weekend, a selection of posters will be displayed across hundreds of digital sites across the country, donated by Clear Channel UK, with the potential to be viewed by thousands of people every day.

Heather MacRae, CEO of the Ideas Foundation says:

“We want children and young people to be involved in Coronation celebrations. By sharing their reflections on specific themes, students will have an opportunity to develop their skills on a live brief showcasing their work to a nationwide audience.”

Free downloadable resources for use in classrooms are available, including a full brief and all of the materials and guidance needed to enter the challenge. The brief can also align with Art and Design, English, Citizenship and History curriculum.

Entries must be suitable for display on large format digital posters (think bus shelter size!) and all entries should be received by 30th April
