Guernsey youngsters compete to design new Ferryspeed ad
School children from Guernsey have taken part in a competition to design a newspaper advert for Ferryspeed and other local businesses.
The annual Design-an-Ad competition, run by the Guernsey Press, encourages local businesses to interact with young people in a practical learning experience, and Ferryspeed was one of the competition’s 23 sponsors.
Ferryspeed received 30 entries from both junior and senior age groups, and the entries were judged by the Guernsey Press.
The adverts could be hand-drawn or computer generated and had to reflect the brief given by the sponsoring business; Ferryspeed’s brief was ‘to create awareness of the importance of freight deliveries to Guernsey’.
Winners were invited to attend a presentation at St Pierre Park Hotel in Saint Peter Port where they were given certificates and had photos taken. Martyn Langlois, Ferryspeed’s Guernsey General Manager, attended the event and presented the certificates to two of the primary school winners who had designed adverts for Ferryspeed.
This is the second year Ferryspeed has taken part in the Design-an-Ad competition. Other sponsors included a cycle shop, consulting engineers, an accountant and a jewellers.
