Design a flag for the Jersey Boat Show

12 March 2015

​Young people are being asked to design the official flag for the Barclays Jersey Boat Show 2015.

The three-day maritime show is now in its eighth year. It takes place on the May bank holiday weekend of 2 to 4 May around St Helier Marina and Weighbridge Place.

The maritime-themed art competition is open to all Jersey primary school children. The winning designer will receive a prize voucher, play a role in the show’s opening ceremony on Saturday 2 May and help hoist their flag. Their school or activity club will also receive a voucher prize.

Group marketing and communications manager for Ports of Jersey, Alan Donald, said “The Barclays Jersey Boat Show has established itself as the Island’s largest free entry community event and appeals to all ages.

Boat show tradition

 “In order to generate interest for the show among a younger audience, we launched this successful initiative in 2011 and since then it has become part of our boat show tradition. The competition isn’t aimed solely at those who can draw; it's intended to encourage our youngsters to free their imagination and come up with a bold and bright image that really stands out from the rest.

“It’s always a tough job for the judging panel to select an overall winner as the level of entries received is always so high, but someone’s got to win and therefore I’d encourage any youngster with some imagination to have a go."

How to enter the competition

The competition is open to all children up to and including 11 years of age. The picture must have a maritime theme, should be drawn on A3 landscape size paper, using materials such as paint, colour pens, pencils or crayons.

The closing date to receive entries is 5pm on Tuesday 7 April 2015.

Further details, including terms and conditions are online.

Completed entries should be delivered by hand to the information desk at Jersey Airport or posted to: Marketing Team, Barclays Jersey Boat Show 2015, c/o Ports of Jersey, St Peter, JE1 1BY.
