As preparation continues towards the main construction phase of the West Midlands Metro extension between Wednesbury and Brierley Hill, the Midland Metro Alliance are seeking talented “colour-iners” (pretty sure that isn’t a word but you get what we mean!) to help to decorate hoardings along the route.
Ben Poultney from Draw My Town has created an image which features important local venues and attractions that will be served by the line (including the Black Country Living Museum, Merry Hill Shopping Centre, Dudley College and Parkhead Viaduct) which the Midland Metro Alliance are now asking talented youngsters to colour in and enter the competition.
There doesn’t seem to be an upper age for the competition – the blurb just says anyone under 16 has to ask permission from a parent or guardian – but there are two categories: “entrants aged 10 and under” and “entrants over age 10”. It is presumably aimed at children but they ask anyone entering to be creative and to use any medium they wish whether that be pens, pencils or paints.
The picture to be coloured in can be downloaded here and it should then be sent to the Midland Metro Alliance by 1200 on Monday 17th August. A picture or scanned copy of the design should be emailed to email@example.com using the subject line “Colouring Competition” and the email should include your name, age and contact details. The design can also be shared on social media with the hashtag #WBHEColouringComp.
Full details of the competition are available here.
