Digital Mural Competition
Design a mural that celebrates Loughborough's inclusive community.
In partnership with the University's Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee we're launching a competition for a digital mural design to communicate and make visible the inclusive nature of Loughborough's community.
We're looking for an imaginative and powerful design that celebrates all marginalised groups and their campaigns for social justice such as Black Lives Matters, AIDS awareness and LGBT+ liberation, disability rights, women’s equality and so on.
The mural should demonstrate solidarity between these groups as well as the fully inclusive culture and community we aspire to be at Loughborough University.
The winning design will be printed onto aluminium and permanently displayed on the underside of the bridge on Sir David Davies Building (West Park), visible to passing pedestrians and traffic.
The competition is open to all UG and PG students from the East Midlands and London campuses. Entries are welcomed from all students regardless of their course. We particularly encourage entries from members of marginalised communities.
You only need to submit a preliminary design/outline of your design as part of your entry, along with some brief written details about the concept behind your design.
1st Prize: £500 and mural design printed onto aluminium and installed on campus
2nd Prize £150
3rd Prize £100
We will feature all the submitted designs on our website and promote them to the University and local community. All the prize-winning entries will be displayed in public locations on our campuses for a short period of time, which may include digital screens and bus shelters.
We want this opportunity to be accessible to all students. If you would like to discuss any accessibility issues in advance of applying or need further support, then please email email@example.com or call 01509 222948.
Deadline for applications: Wednesday 24 November 2021
We will aim to install the finished mural in early 2022.
