A TOWN-WIDE campaign to promote affordable credit in Middlesbrough is looking for talented young artists to design a poster.

The town’s Middlesbrough Partnership and the Know Your Money (KYM) project are asking for submissions to the competition which will close on Friday, January 17.

The poster needs to encourage the various forms of affordable credit, such as Credit Unions, as an alternative to payday loans, and to encourage people with money problems to seek assistance.

Councillor Tracy Harvey, Middlesbrough Council’s executive lead for welfare reform, will be judging the competition.

She said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to use their creativity for a poster that will be visible across the town.

“I am looking forward to seeing what our gifted youngsters can come up with to promote affordable credit in their hometown.”

The young artist behind the winning poster will receive £100 of love2shop vouchers.

Entries should be added to the KYM Middlesbrough Facebook page or e-mailed to susan.borrow@erimushousing.co.uk
