A talented group of students from St Patrick’s won the Humber Violence Prevention Partnership’s (Humber VPP) anti-violence poster competition.

20240523 JE Branded Posters

Launched in March 2024, the campaign challenged schools and youth groups across the Humber region to channel their creativity into powerful artwork promoting peace. The competition encouraged students to consider key messages for their friends and community, urging them to stop using violence, reject weapons and look out for one another. These messages were interpreted through impactful visuals and slogans.

The Humber VPP was very impressed by the quality of entries. However, the winning poster stood out thanks to its combination of bold graphics and inspiring message.

To help bring the design to life, the Humber VPP partnered with The Warren Project for a workshop hosted at their digital hub, The Curve. In the digital editing workshop, the winning students collaborated with a graphic designer to enhance their poster with professional software. This finalised poster will be displayed for two weeks on a digital screen along Anlaby Road (Hull) and Brigg Road (Scunthorpe) starting 24 May 2024.

The winning team was also rewarded with a £50 gift voucher, along with £200 worth of new books for St Patrick's. Prizes were also awarded to the second and runner-up entries to acknowledge their efforts. All entries will be showcased in a public exhibition and selected posters will be included in the Humber VPP's ongoing violence prevention campaign.
