The Big Poster Challenge-Judging

We are conscious there's been a rather lengthy silence with regards to The Big Poster Challenge since the call for entries went out , so here's an update...

You may recall that back in January LPA, The Mental Health Foundation and Clear Channel Outdoor teamed up to launch an exciting competition for an extremely worthwhile cause.

We invited the nations creatives to propose their ideas for a poster campaign to help the public understand the invaluable benefits of Mindfulness, a simple form of meditation that alleviates stress,

The prize was to have the idea produced by LPA and shot by one of their leading commercial photographers, the final execution being unveiled on 48 and 6 sheet posters across the UK.

Judged by the most esteemed names in the communications industry, The Big Poster Challenge has been the competition everyone is talking about and we're delighted with the tremendous response we've had.

The judging panel (see below) got together back in May at Big Sky Studios, and after a few hours of deliberation chose the winner. It was a fascinating afternoon and a real privilege to hear the opinions of such industry luminaries.

So now we have a winner and production is very much underway!
