Stop Hate – Be a Mate Poster Competition

***Deadline Extended***

Due to popular demand, there’s an extention to the age range and deadline for the #StopHateBeAMate poster competition.

Children aged 8-15 are invited to design a new poster for this campaign to tackle hate crime.

Fantastic prizes are on offer for the top three winning entries – a £100 voucher for the winner, a £75 voucher for second place, a £50 voucher for third place and £10 vouchers for ten runners up (thank you to WDH).  

The winning entry will be also used for the campaign over the next twelve months.

To submit an entry, children aged 8-15 (on 09/10/20) should create a design that depicts an act of kindness in the spirit of ‘Stop hate, be a mate’. 

Designs should be A4 size in landscape and can be created using any media including digital drawings, paint, collage or print. The design does not need to contain text; a written explanation can be provided with the entry if needed.

All entries must be submitted by 12noon on Thursday 15 October.  Judging by the Mayor of Wakefield, Cllr Charles Keith will take place during National Hate Crime Awareness Week on Friday 16 October.

Please send entries using one of the following options:
