Brickosaurs Design-a-Poster competition

Brickosaurs, a brick model trail featuring huge ferocious-looking dinosaurs is coming to Blackburn – and we need your help to create some warning signs!

In the run up to the models arriving during the summer holidays, we want to let people know that they’re on their way.

We need lots of A4 posters creating, featuring words like ‘warning’, danger’, ‘live animals’ etc to keep everyone safe. Alternatively, you may want to draw one of the colourful creatures so people know what they look like.

The Brickosaurs trail will feature 15 prehistoric beasts made of colourful interlocking bricks. They will be ‘captured’ in shop windows or surrounded by barriers around the town centre between 20 August and 1 September.

The competition will be split into two age categories – under 11s and 11-16 – all posters will be displayed around the town centre, and there will be some great prizes up for grabs including goody bags and High Street Vouchers. The winners of each category will also be invited to officially unveil the T-Rexcellent models!

The deadline for entries is 13 August and submissions need to be dropped off at the Ask Me Point in The Mall.

Catherine Price, Blackburn town centre BID Manager, said: “We are so excited to welcome the unique collection of bright and colourful Brickosaurs sculptures to #Brickburn. 

“We need to warn people that these brightly coloured dinosaur brick models are on their way – and we need your help.”
