Entry details

This year, we've made your competition even easier, with no video or PDF presentation needed. All you need to do is fill in the entry form here answering the following questions:

  • Tell us about the organisation of your choice. (150 words max)
  • What would branding a bus mean to your organisation? (300 words max)

As soon as your entry is in, it will be published in the gallery ready for the public to view. Voting will then open from 1st August 2022. After the voting is open, you can continue to enter the competition, but remember that the earlier your entry is in the gallery, the longer the public has to vote for you. 

All entries must be submitted before 1st October 2022, and public voting will close on 1st November 2022.

The 10 entries who receive the most votes from members of the public will be shortlisted. A final winner will then be selected by a panel of judges. We'll announce the winner and work with them to design their bus in early 2023. See full terms and conditions here.
