Last month, Daydream Education launched its Anti-Bullying Poster Competition in support of Anti-Bullying Alliances’ Anti-Bullying Week. We wanted to spread the word that bullying is not tolerated in schools and encourage inclusive attitudes amongst young people. The competition was a great success and we received some fantastic feedback from the teachers that took part! They informed us that their pupils really enjoyed creating the posters and benefited from it greatly.
The Design Brief
Pupils were asked to design a poster that raised awareness of bullying and promoted a safe environment in which children and young people could live, grow, play and learn. The posters could be based on any topic related to bullying from cyber-bullying to physical-bullying.
We received 250 entries from 25 schools in the UK and worldwide. We were amazed by the quality of the entries that we received and by how much effort the pupils had clearly put into their designs. The posters were created through a variety of methods; some pupils used pencil crayons and paint whilst others used computer software packages. The pupils came up with some innovative and original concepts for their posters which were very inspiring.
Bearing all of this in mind our expert design team found it extremely difficult to pick just one winner and ten runners-up. After much deliberation they decided on the final prize winners which are listed below.
The winning poster was created by Maisey Glover from St Clere's School in Stanford-le-Hope. We loved the design of the poster and thought the content was excellent as well.
The winning poster will be transformed into a professionally designed A1 Poster and the school will receive 10 copies, plus 3 sets of our Bullying & Prejudice posters. Look out for the final design on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
10 runners-up were also chosen to receive a set of our Bullying & Prejudice Posters. The 10 schools who will receive a runners-up prize are listed below.
- St Patrick's Boys' National School Galway

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of the schools that took part! We thoroughly enjoyed reviewing all of the pupils’ designs.
