Creative minds can help design new welcome signs for Bourne’s Thursday and Saturday markets to be seen by shoppers for a minimum of 12 months.

The competition, part of this year’s Love Your Local Market initiative, asks designers to come up with an imaginative logo for a number of new feather flags that will be flown in the area of Bourne Corn Exchange where the twice-weekly market is based.

Entries must be simple, but dynamic and embrace the theme of a market, a trade between two parties or the theme of Grow the Economy promoted by South Kesteven District Council (SKDC).

The winner will get a 1Life Leisure Centre annual membership and two tickets to a Meres Live show of their choice at Guildhall Arts Centre, Grantham.

Paul Stokes of SKDC said: “We want to embrace the district’s local creative talent and give one designer the chance to showcase their work at our markets.”

Schools in Bourne and the Deepings will be contacted by the district council in the coming weeks so that younger designers can get involved in the competition.

A logo on display to thousands of local people would be a real boost to a designer’s portfolio, whilst giving our markets some inventive new signage at the same time

But anyone can enter a design, providing it is not on behalf of a business or enterprise, a maximum 1000mm high x 500mm wide and submitted in jpeg format.

Mr Stokes said: “A logo on display to thousands of local people would be a real boost to a designer’s portfolio, whilst giving our markets some inventive new signage at the same time.”

Designers can enter a maximum of three designs by the closing date of June 30 and they should be emailed to loveyourmarkets@southkesteven.gov.uk
