Mersey Ferries launch schools’ competition

MERSEY Ferries has announced the launch of the #MyMerseyFerry schools’ competition. 

Students across the North West, along with the help of their teachers are being asked to create  an original and unique poster design featuring  Mersey Ferries’ world famous Dazzle Ship. The poster needs to be inspired by the words ‘Great Days Out’ and show families that they can have an amazing and memorable day out on the Mersey Ferry. 

The chosen design will be featured as a poster on the Mersey Ferries and at Ferry Terminals this summer. 

The winning student, along with their lucky classmates will also win a VIP voyage on-board the River Explorer Cruise with a trip to Spaceport included and entry to the U Boat Story. 

To enter, pupils are asked to design their own eye catching A4 poster which must feature Mersey Ferries’ colourful Dazzle Ferry.  Entries can be submitted by teachers by emailing marketing@merseytravel.gov.uk with the subject header #MyMerseyFerry along with the artwork. All entries must include the pupil’s name, age and school name. 

The competition will close on Friday 14 June 2019 with winners being announced on the Wednesday 19 June 2019. For full terms and conditions visit: https://www.merseyferries.co.uk/cruises/special-cruises-and-events/Pages/Competition%20Terms%20and%20Conditions.aspx

The eye-catching dazzle design of Mersey Ferries’ Dazzle Ferries is in honour of the patterns that were first used on vessels during  World War One. They worked by ‘baffling the eye’ and making the ships difficult to target. Each ship’s pattern used unique colour and monochrome designs – to avoid making classes of vessels recognisable to enemy U-boats and aircraft.
